This hike in the area of Merano (Meran) runs from Lana to San Ippolito (St. Hippolyt), a little alpine chapel with a gorgeous setting.


This hike from Lana to San Ippolito (St. Hippolyt) starts from the Roggia di Brandis (Brandiswaalweg) Trail, which runs alongside a Waal water channel, in Lana di Sotto (Niederlana), following Trail No. 1 above the Museum of Fruit Growing (Obstbaumuseum) towards Foiana (Völlan). Then take the Brünnlerweg Trail through deciduous forests and orchards and past Mair am Gatter Farm and Aichholz Farm. From the centre of Foiana, continue along Via Bagnia (Badlweg), which starts behind the Farmer's Museum (Bauernmuseum) and then continues through the forest on a shady trail (No. 10) to Bagni di Foiana (Völlaner Badl). The trail goes downhill towards Wittmer-Hof Farm and continues on down to Obermayrhof Farm. From there, follow trail markings (No. 8) further to the foot of the San Ippolito Hill, where you’ll have a lovely view of Laghetto di Naran (Narauner Weiher) Pond. In order to reach a unique outlook point and the Romanesque church, it’s a bit tough going up the last few metres: the trail is bumpy and steep. Return to Foiana on Trail No. 8, passing Talmühle Tavern. The No. 14 bus departs for Lana from Foiana every hour.
