Three Promenades: Winter, Summer, and Gilf Historical promenades in the Merano city centre
Start out in Piazza della Rena (Sandplatz) in Merano (Meran), namely the northern side of the Ponte Passirio (Passerbrücke) Bridge (318 m), and follow the broad Winter Promenade on the orographic right and north bank of the Passerio (Passer) River. The walk is basically level. You’ll pass an iron bridge and a stone bridge and continue along the Gilf Promenade until you reach a viewing platform over the Gilf Gorge, which is just up some short steps. Cross over the bridge to the other side of the Passer River, and follow its left bank, along the Summer Promenade, back to the Ponte Passiria. We end our hike after a short walk along the Kur Promenade, on the right bank of the river.
