A weekend in Merano: nice views, walks, and Christmas market

Recently I've spent a weekend in Merano.
It's a very nice place to spend some days: a nice town to wander around, many excursion paths, nice views, and Christmas market between 25-Nov and 06-Jan.

Here are some photos from this weekend, enjoy!

Bistrot La Piazza, just above the Terme car parking, cappuccino and pastries are very good!

In Merano you can find many hiking trails, here is a photo with a map of some walks. The original map is here.

Hotel Wiesenhof
We have spent the night at the Hotel Wiesenhof.
It's a very nice hotel at just 2 km from Merano center. The staff is very kind, the restaurant is very good, and the garden looks fantastic ((there is also a very nice internal swimming pool, probably the best swimming pool I've seen in an hotel... but I left my camera in the room, so I have no photos :-) )
