THROUGH THE STEINACH DISTRICT
Cobblestones in shaded alleyways. Wooden shutters and weathered signs. What makes things here, between the Pfarrkirche church and Passer river, so different? The secret behind the Steinach district is its age. What is probably Merano’s most rustic quarter dates back to medieval times, as evidenced by the Passiria gate and the massive walls. The venerable architecture is blended with modern touches, from the tailor shop to cultural and artistic clubs. The Steinach district will charm anyone who takes the time to explore it!
