The village of Scena
The village with direct access to the mountain
Scena, the vacation resort with its unique location on a large sunny terrace above Merano guarantees you long sunny days and mild Mediterranean temperatures.
Schenna- a vacation paradise
To a lot of sunshine and vacation mood belongs a Nordic Walking Parcours through the orchards, a rich children's program, riding possibilities, a miniature golf course in the center, a great outdoor swimming pool with an unobstructed view of Merano, tennis courts and much more. Numerous event and vacation organization possibilities such as festivals, guided tours and concerts for young and old are organized and made possible by the tourist association, in addition to a variety of eventful excursion possibilities and theme trails around the village itself.
The warm, sunny slopes below and above the village are planted with vines and apple trees. It is precisely this characteristic natural landscape that not only characterizes the scenic charm of Schenna, but at the same time offers countless opportunities for excursions into the great outdoors around the village itself. The village borders directly on Merano and begins at the beginning of the Naiftal valley, just above Maia Alta, the villa district of Merano. From there, Scena stretches for several kilometers to Verdines, at the end of which the wild Mauslucht gorge abruptly ends the lovely ridge of Scena, which is located in front of the Mount Ivigna.
5 things you should do in Scena!
You can make every autumn day a wonderful hiking day here, thanks to the two fabulous hiking areas, which are both in the immediate vicinity and are very easily accessible thanks to their cable cars. Ideal, not only to quickly escape the heat, but also to experience memorable mountain days at lofty heights! But also in and around the village there are particularly praiseworthy to discover.
Follow the cool water through cool forests - true to this motto, a hike along the trail also known as the Neuwaal is the perfect choice. The Waal Path of Scena starts in the wild Masulschlucht and leads on a varied course over the roofs of the villages to the Naiftal above Merano. Several access points make it easy for you to get started on different sections of the trail.
The magnificent Monte Scena can be reached quickly and comfortably with the Taser cable car. Once arrived, you can make yourself comfortable at the family alp Taser with its numerous attractions (also very suitable for children) or alternatively take an easy walk in the direction of Streitweider Alm. A bit more strenuous, but certainly more rewarding is the ascent to the Ifinger hut (approx. 1:30 h).
An absolute must-do if you are a hiking enthusiast and landscape lover at the same time. The somewhat remote, but excellently managed Videgger Assen Alm is located on a very high hay meadow, a bit far from the shot, but very scenic with a magnificent view of Merano.
Another possibility to escape from the summer heat is the second cable car of Scena, which goes from the fraction Verdins over a steep gorge up to Tall. There, a network of 80 km of marked hiking trails of the Hirzer hiking area awaits you, but also the romantic chairlift "Grube" , which dates back to the time when the Hirzer hiking area was also a ski area and continues upwards in the immediate vicinity of the cable car mountain station.
Another elegant way to escape the summer heat: Go behind the thick, old walls of Schenna Castle dating back to 1350 A.D. Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the lord of the castle personally opens the high gates twice a day to give you a guided tour of the history, art and culture from the last four centuries!
