Other activities include golf, horseback riding, swimming or visits to some of South Tyrol’s beautiful parks (one of which, Maiser Park, was constructed especially for the guests of the Obermais health centers, in 1895).


Tappeinerweg trail (6 km)

This hugely popular trail offers stunning views of Merano and the Adige valley. The botanical nature trail leads past a variety of interesting plants all the way to the famous medieval Ortenstein tower, popularly called “Pulverturm” (powder tower), which was used to store gunpowder from the 17th century onwards. The trail leads along the foothills of Küchelberg mountain (380 m above sea level) from Quarazze eastwards to San Zeno mountain. The trail lies some 100 m above the valley and is relatively flat and easily accessible from many starting points.

Maiser Waalweg trail (9 km)

“Waalweg” means irrigation ditch. There are several such ditches which have dried up and now serve as wonderful hiking trails in the midst of unspoilt nature. This particular trail leads through deciduous trees and conifers, over beautiful hills into the Passiria valley and all the way to Saltusio. The entire trail takes about 2-3 hours to walk but can be shortened according to your liking.
