One of the castles in South Tyrol that is most worth visiting is in the vicinity of the Schlosswirt. Ancestral seat of the Counts of Merano in Tyrol, it is still owned by the family today. Built around 1350, for the most part it still retains its original features to this day. Thanks to Archduke Johann’s various collections, Scena Castle is unique. As part of an exciting, guided tour discover historic, everyday objects, weaponry spanning six centuries, paintings by famous Tyrolean artists and other fascinating items.

The number one attention-grabber in Hotel Schlosswirt in Scena and widely known about due to its significant art history. The neo-Gothic mausoleum on the outermost edge of the church hill in Scena – set up between 1860 and 1869 as a gravesite for the family of Archduke Johann of Austria - is constructed from red sandstone and granite from Monte Ivigna, an impressive summit above Scena. United in love, Archduke Johann and his wife Anna Plochl are at rest under an impressive ribbed vault. Visit this exciting piece of Tyrolean history.

A paradise above the spa town of Merano for those who adore flowers. Just a few minutes in a bus or car from our holiday home from home are 80 dreamy garden landscapes, on an area spanning 12 hectares. As well as countless plants that are local to the region, exotic plants from countries around the globe thrive in these vibrant gardens. Next to this colourful, floral variety is Trauttmansdorff Castle, a former holiday home of Empress Sissi and South Tyrol Museum of Tourism. The combination is one spectacle you will remember for a long time to come.

Merano combines promenades, gardens, a mild climate and Mediterranean flair. The charm of this historic, cultural town lies in its villas and magnificent buildings, in the colourful variety of artists and cultural heritage, in the harmonious interplay of Tyrolean customs and Italian lifestyle. Spa house and town theatre, medieval pergolas, picturesque Passiro promenade, legendary horse racing area, exciting shopping opportunities and more. Enjoy hospitality, cuisine and culture between the Alpine pastures and palm trees.

There are around 500 kilometres of well signposted hiking paths spread throughout Scena. The extensive and naturally beautiful Punta Cervina area is quickly and easily accessible via the cable car from the village of Verdines near Scena and from the village of Saltusio in Passeier valley. With its wide paths from one Alpine inn to another, this hiking area is ideal for every fitness level. Proficient summiteers can scale Punta Cervina, which, at 2781 metres, is the highest mountain in Alpi Sarentine. Sun worshippers can enjoy fulfilling hours on the panorama rich high plateau Merano 2000.

Culinary indulgence can be elevated, and not. Regional and traditional South Tyrolean specialities extend from the valley to way above the treeline. In the hiking region of Scena you can discover the mountain lodges and Alpine inns which offer just the right selection for every appetite. From a hearty ‘Hüttenpfandl’ to traditional meat dishes to the typically tempting ‘Kaiserschmarrn’, active holidaymakers are served whatever they crave. Lovely warmth on the sun terrace and dreamy panoramic views included. Get the latest information and tips about Alpine inns at our Reception.

Sights with views. Anyone who walks on the Waalweg paths will be enjoying an exciting piece of history. Centuries ago, farmers in the mountain uplands in Val d’Adige inserted little channels to irrigate their orchards and vineyards. To this day, fresh spring water is channelled via the ‘Waale’ (or irrigation canals) into the valley. And you get to hike along them.

Scena’s Waalweg path proceeds from the spectacular Masul Ravine above the village through a forest of spruce and apple groves into Val di Nova, always providing a clear view to the expansive Merano valley basin.

The Maia Waalweg path proceeds down from Scena, close to our hotel. It proceeds through Passiria’s apple meadows to the neighbouring village of Saltusio.

The Waalwege paths in Scena and nine other Waalwege paths in Meraner Land together form the Merano Waal Circuit. Covering 80 kilometres, this takes in Merano basin and is one of the loveliest sights in South Tyrol.
