For the city of Merano in South Tyrol, spring is a very important and particularly heartfelt season. On the occasion of the spring equinox until June, the Merano Spring begins in the South Tyrolean town. This is an event that offers activities that can give well-being to body and mind, that gives opportunities and that opens up new spaces to enjoy nature and its regenerating properties.
In various parts of Merano's city centre and along the Passer Promenade, "flower figures" are exhibited, natural sculptures in various forms, including a snake, an eagle, an atlas, a ballerina, a giant egg, flying doves and the bell tower of St Nicholas Cathedral.
The villages of Scena, Lagundo and Naturno are also involved in this beautiful flower show.
