I am sharing my last travel recap of our South-Tyrol tour today so I am a little sad cause there is still lots of summer left but our vacation is already over.
Meran wasn´t the biggest city but I would say definitely the city with the most people and most things to do and see.
We stayed 3 days – from Friday to Sunday. Before checking in at our Hotel we visited the local market (it only was a 30 minutes drive from Bolzano). I was hoping for a big market like the ones they have at Lago di Garda. It was pretty similar but I would say only one third of the size. Although I have found some pretty nice pieces.
We checked into our hotel and after we had some coffee and exoplored the city.
After a quick refresh in the hotel we went out to the Forsterbräu for dinner.
They had delicious typical austrian food and they also brew their own beer. This really is a recommendation to visit cause you can sit outside as well as inside (the decoration and atmosphere is so nice) and they also have a small garden in the backyard to eat outside.
On Saturday (our 2nd day) we went back to the city and had a look the church St. Nikolaus (and for some ice-cream). It was pretty impressive. So big and I loved that the front was build of bricks.
We got some souvenirs (since we buy a magnet for our kitchen from every place we went together) and afterwards we went into stores and got some button downs and polo shirts for Florian.
There are so many beautiful park areas in the city centre of Meran. You can stroll around and sit by the fountains or stay in the shadow under big palm trees.
On the evening there was a singer at the hotel´s patio so we had a drink there listening to music before heading out for dinner to a burger restaurant.
The burger´s where amazing and so affordable. They had different types of homemade fries and dips. So delicious.
Unfortunately it started raining so we couldn´t go back to the live music.
The next day we checked out, loaded the car and headed back home.
After 5 hours we where finally back in our own house. It is always nice to get out for a few days and see other places and do other things than you are usually up to but for us it is a reminder how we love are home and being at home.
I liked South-Tyrol a lot but I didn´t love it. In the end is just too much mountains for me. I had always been and will always be a lake/beach girl.
Have you already been there ? What did you do ?
As always thanks for stopping by.
Take care. See you.
