That’s a winter holiday in South Tyrol.

Mountains and valleys covered in glittering white. An atmosphere of utter peace. And then of course, the other side of this winter wonderland: The great outdoors, just waiting to be enjoyed.


Skiing in Merano. Winter sun to takeaway.


Five ski resorts in the region of Merano come with slopes for all levels of skill and ambition and offer perfect conditions for experienced skiers as well as for those who are still finding their feet.

The ski resort Merano 2000 is ideal for newbies and just a short drive away from the Hotel Das Sonnenparadies in Schenna. Thanks to compact pistes and helpful signposting, it is easy to find your way around. Under the radiant winter sun, you will be swishing down gentle slopes and steep downhill runs.

In the Merano 2000 ski resort, professional instructors will help you on your way and improve your technique, either in group sessions or one-to-one lessons. Most importantly, they will kindle a love of nature.

And the best thing about it: A free, private ski bus takes you from Hotel Das Sonnenparadies to the ski resort in less than 15 minutes, making it easy to start your day on the slopes.


Snowshoe and winter hiking. Wide paths. Abundant joy.


Icicles that glitter in the sunshine, snow-covered forests, stunning vistas of the mountain panorama beyond. Our sun plateau high above Merano offers leisurely as well as demanding routes.

The gentle walk through powder snow is unbelievably grounding. No noise, no distraction – just you and this stunning natural setting. This is where walking becomes a meditative experience. Engage with what is around you and feel the soothing silence and healing force of nature.

An insider’s tip is the hike from the Haashof towards Videgg: a route providing amazing views that you may access directly from your door at Hotel Das Sonnenparadies.


Cross-country skiing around Merano. Find your rhythm in the snow.


Cross-country skiing on the high plateaus around Merano is synonymous with freedom. Freedom when it comes to choosing your trail. Freedom when it comes to choosing your level of difficulty. Freedom when it comes to choosing your style. Leave your traces in the snow, either in classic or skating technique, in a South Tyrolean winter with guaranteed snow.

Whether you are a beginner or experienced cross-country skier, you may enjoy perfectly prepared trails, an excellently signposted trail network, lots of refreshment opportunities along the way, and of course breathtaking panoramas.

The closest trail of the Merano 2000 ski resort is located at an altitude of 1,600 metres and passes through the villages of Hafling and Vöran as well as over the “sunshine plateau” as a circular route. The route is ideal for discovering this Nordic discipline as it does not contain any bumpy stretches.

Best of all, you may access it directly from Hotel Das Sonnenparadies.


Ski touring around Merano. The road less travelled.


Winter in South Tyrol is multi-faceted and multi-layered. Make your holiday into a truly unforgettable memory and try out something new.

The South Tyrolean Alps are a paradise for ski trekkers. Make your way up the mountain through snow-covered forests, where you will be rewarded with breathtaking views. Make the most of the moment before swishing back down to the valley on pistes covered in velvety powder snow.

Ski touring is an unadulterated form of exercise, in which you are completely independent and engaging directly with nature, making your own path as you go along.
