Hotel Falzeben, right on the slope

A winter holiday in the Merano 2000 ski resort

Our hotel in Avelengo is just a stone’s throw from the Merano 2000 and is, therefore, the perfect base for an action-packed winter holiday in the Merano area. Whether it’s skiing, cross-country skiing (Langlauf), tobogganing or idyllic winter hikes in and around the village, everything’s possible here.

There’s something for everyone in this family-friendly ski resort. Children, beginners and experts alike will all find the right activity for their needs. You can look forward to pristinely prepared pistes, a well-maintained Langlauf track, a toboggan run, the Merano 2000 Alpine Bob – South Tyrol’s first year-round bob run on rails and the longest in Italy – and much, much more.

The pistes are also hugely popular in the evenings and, when you’re done, so is the après ski in our bar, the Boxenstopp. A skiing holiday on Merano 2000 – in the thick of the action!

Winter sports in Avelengo – diverse and unforgettable!

Tobogganing – winter fun for the entire family!

Tobogganing, especially on the fabulous natural toboggan run in the Merano 2000 ski resort, is a fun activity for the entire family and adds that something different to your winter holiday.
Take the Merano 2000 cable car up to Pivigna and then zoom down the 2.8m run to the start, where you’ll arrive right on our doorstep at the Hotel Falzeben – the perfect place to stay during your winter holiday in Avelengo.
The run is also floodlit every Friday evening between 7:30pm and 10:30pm – zipping down the slope under the moonlight is quite an experience!
