The pond is at its loveliest in summer. White water lilies cover the pond while yellow irises, floating water plantains, marsh horsetails, bulrushes, bur-reed, and a host of other plants thrive at the shoreline.


The hike to Sulfner Weiher Pond leads first from the Nusser parking area in Hafling Dorf on trail no. 14, ascending up a slight grade to the Sonnenheim Restaurant. The route crosses the street there, runs past the Innergruberhof farm, and turns at the fork towards St. Kathrein/S. Caterina. At this point, we reach the picturesque Sulfner Weiher pond, known for its unique vegetation.

The hike descends slightly, running past the Sulfner Riding Stable to St. Kathrein, which offers a magnificent view over Meran and ends along the blocked-off paved road back to the starting point.

Tip: Information stations provide information about the pond’s flora and fauna.

Coming from both directions of the freeway Meran - Bozen (MEBO), take the exit of Meran Süd/Merano Sud and follow directions towards Meran first, to then turn right towards Hafling/Avelengo, follow the street until the parking lot in Avelengo village (below the parish church).
