How far is Algund from Merano?
Algund is about 2 kilometres away from Merano. Thus, you live in the middle of greenery and yet close to the city. You can easily reach the spa town in a few minutes by public transport (bus or train) or by walking along the Algunder Waalweg Trail (irrigation channel path).
Are there special hikes with dogs?
Your friend on four paws is of course very welcome in Algund and the surrounding area. Whether on walking paths between vines and fruit trees, on one of the irrigation channel paths or at higher altitudes: your pooch is sure to feel right at home at any altitude.
But beware: leashes are required by law on most hiking trails - so please don't forget them. You should also have a muzzle ready for possible rides in cable cars, otherwise you will have to stay on the ground.
When do the apple blossoms bloom in Algund?
The apple trees in Merano and environs bloom between late March and late April. The timing depends very much on the weather and the temperatures.
Where are the e-bike charging stations in Algund?
In the centre of the village of Algund there are three free charging stations to quickly and conveniently recharge the battery of your e-bike before embarking on the next tour. Not that you suddenly find yourself without fuel in the middle of the route - that would be very annoying. So, let's head for the e-bike charging stations!

  • In front of the town hall in Algund, to the left of the entrance (Hans Gamper Square 1).
  • In the parking garage on Josef Weingartner Street (left of the Hotel Tirolerhof)
  • At the church square next to the tourist office in front of the church (Hans Gamper Square 3).
  • You can get a charging card at the Algund Tourist Office for a deposit of € 20.00, which can be used to open the charging boxes with the electricity connection.
Where are the e-car charging stations at Algund?
Algund has a good network of charging stations. If you arrive by electric car, you can conveniently refuel your car at one of the charging stations.

In the centre of Algund:
  • In the Hans-Gamper-Platz car park (opposite the Algund town hall).
 The power is approx. 11 kW at 0.30 €/kWh. Tesla needs about 10 hours to be charged. Charge must be paid by credit card.

How does it work:
  • Option 1: Using Plugsurfing charging key (RFID), hold RFID key to reader.
  • Option 2: With registration: download Plugsurfing App
  • Option 3: Without registration: scan QR code and follow instructions.

Other charging stations:
  • Alperia fast-charging stations at the car park Brauerei Forst (Vinschgauerstraße 8)
  • in the ALGO shopping centre (9 a.m. - 8 p.m.)
  • Railway station in Merano
  • Merano Thermal Baths car park: There are two dedicated parking spaces with 22 KW connection (e-charging station) for electric cars on Floor A. Here you can pay the charging fee directly by credit card or Paypal after scanning a QR code. The charging station is operated by Alperia.
These stations are charged at 22 kW, so charging is faster.

How does it work:
  • Activate the charging pole - with your card, the Neogy app or your smartphone - for Direct Payment.
  • Follow the instructions on the display and connect the other end of the cable to the charging pole.
  • When charging is complete, finish the process with your card or app and disconnect the cable from the charging pole first and then from your car.

Where can I buy the Vignette for Austria?
  • Brennero: You can buy the Vignette at the roadhouse Lanz at the Brenner right before the border to Austria. Shortly after the border you can get the Vignette at the OMV gas station Rosenberger. The last opportunity to get the Vignette is at the Shell gas station at the Europabrücke (the gas station is located on the left side oft he road, therefore you really need to look out for the right exit!).
  • Reschenpass/Passo Resia: After passing the border to Austria you will find the BP gas station on the left side of the road. You can buy the Vignette there.
  • You can also buy the Vignette online at shop.asfinag.at/. Please note the 18 day waiting period! The Vignette is valid no earlier than 18 days after purchase thus is most likely not the right option for holidays.
  • You can find further sales offices at www.asfinag.at/maut-vignette/vertriebsstellen/.
