Apple-shaped dreams in Lana
Embark on a rose-red sea of apple blossoms, the air filled with an infatuating scent, in South Tyrolean Lana. The charming „apple village“ in the environs of Meran, the so-called „gate to the South“, unites alpine and Mediterranean flair offering various possibilities for sporting aces, culture loves, hedonists and families alike.
The intelligently designed road-net is a paradise for walkers and bikers offering a unique insight to the wonderful mountains around Lana. Incomparably charming are the path Brandis along the ancient irrigation channel, the wild gorge of Gaul or the nearby pass Vigiljoch.
