Oberlechner is very well known in the region. It is a meeting point for locals, who like to celebrate special occasions here, such as weddings, and for guests who enjoy South Tyrolean cuisine and good local wine.
Situated in Vellau, high above Merano and Algund, the view from the terrace of this simple, casual inn offers a breathtaking view into the Etschtal valley. The original farmer’s parlours are particularly cosy and inviting.
The short hike from the Pergola to Vellau is just challenging enough that you arrive there hungry and ready to be spoiled. The forests are pleasantly refreshing, even in the summer months.
