Places of interest in Merano and Environs
The holiday region of Merano and Environs is home to some of the most beautiful cultural monuments and places of interest in the Alps. The oldest frescoes in German-speaking Europe adorn the little Church of St. Proculus in Naturno (Naturns).
Some of the most impressive monuments, though, are created not by the hand of man but are natural landmarks such as the oldest larch trees in Europe, the ancient larches of the Ulten Valley. Other landmarks, such as the Knottnkino “natural cinema” above Avalengo (Hafling) and Verano (Vöran), fuse art and nature in harmonious unity.

Botanic Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle
Here, the visitor may experience the whole world in a garden. This is made possible by the special climate of the sun-drenched Merano health resort.
The never ending plot you are going to see, once you have taken your seat in the Knottnkino, is created solely by nature itself
St. Proculus Church
The interior of the Proculus Church shows the oldest fresco in the entire German speaking language area. These pre-Carolingian fresco dating from the 7th/8th century were discovered only in 1923.
