How far is Merano from Munich?

The distance between Merano in South Tyrol / Italy and Munich in Germany is approximately 300 kilometers when considering the route via road. The exact distance can vary, depending on the specific route taken. The driving time by car is usually about 3 - 4 hours, depending on traffic conditions and the chosen route.

Option 1: Via the Brenner Pass

A frequently used route leads from Munich via the A8 and A93 to the A13 through Austria over the Brenner Pass, which is one of the main arteries through the Alps. After crossing the Brenner Pass, you continue on the A22 in Italy until you reach the Bolzano Sud motorway exit. From there, you will reach Merano on the expressway MeBo. This route is relatively fast and direct.

Brenner and Jaufen Pass

For a route that includes the Jaufen Pass, you would typically drive from Munich via Innsbruck, then southwards towards the Brenner Pass, but turn off towards Sterzing beforehand. From Sterzing, you can drive over the Jaufen Pass and through the Passeier Valley, which is a very scenic but winding and challenging route before you reach Merano.

Option 2: Via the Reschen Pass

An alternative and scenically attractive route takes you from Munich via the A95 or A96 and further on Austrian country roads towards Landeck, from where you cross the Reschen Pass, which connects Italy with Austria. After crossing the pass, you enter the Vinschgau and drive southwards to Merano. This route is particularly appealing because of the drive along the Reschen Lake and through the Vinschgau.
