Nordic walking, hiking, climbing, swimming … you name it! A holiday at the Alpine Lifestyle Hotel Ambet in Meransen is all about outdoor movement and enjoying all that the Gitschberg Jochtal holiday area can offer. The pristine Altfasstal Valley is well worth exploring: hikers can discover the Almen-Kneippweg mountain hut trail or the Kleine Gitsch mountain. Mountain biking fans can explore Waldluft forest trail while Nordic walkers head down the Hühnerspiel trail. We organize guided hikes several times a week accompanying our guests to some the most beautiful spots in the vicinity of our hotel.
Thanks to its position near the meeting point of the Pustertal and Eisacktal valleys, Meransen is the ideal point of departure for a number of stunning hiking trips. These include excursions to the natural parks in the Dolomites, or to the picturesque Pragser Wildsee lake as well as the better-known destinations such as the Pustertal Valley. To the west the spa town of Merano fascinates visitors with its sophisticated Art Nouveau architecture as well as the fascinating wine region around Kalterer See lake or Lake Garda. Innsbruck across the border in North Tyrol is also well worth visiting with its Alpine zoo.

What to see around Meransen
The picturesque village of Mühlbach in the heart of the Gitschberg Jochtal holiday area is a must-see. Due to its historical-cultural importance as well as its shops the ancient town of Brixen, seat of the former archdiocese, is also worth visiting. With its majestic cathedral, narrow medieval streets and small shops, the artists’ town of Klausen is of considerable interest as is the old town center of Bruneck.
Perched on a rocky outcrop between the villages of Mühlbach and Schabs, Rodeneck Castle was once a formidable and influential bastion in the area. This imposing fortress dates back from the first half of the twelfth century and houses a renowned cycle of frescoes, containing the very first graphic depictions of the secular and chivalrous culture in the Germanic lands. Further we recommend visiting the age-old mountain farms of Pfunderertal Valley where the ancient peasant customs and traditions of yesteryear are preserved and are still practiced as in the old days.
We will gladly help you to organize your excursions, according to your preferences.
