Especially worth seeing in Maranza / Meransen is the Church of St. Jakob, a beautiful Tyrolean Rococo building with a magnificent high altar. Also worth visiting are Rodeneck Castle, Mühlbacher Klause, the so-called "Jungfrauenrast" or the mighty mansions in the surrounding area.

Maranza's local mountain is the 2,500 m high Gitschberg, in summer a wonderful hiking area with a fantastic all-round panorama of the Zillertal, Ötztal and Stubai Alps and the Dolomites. The terrain is also ideal for mountain bikers, with routes of all levels of difficulty. Nordic walking and fitness are further offerings for an active holiday, as well as tennis, climbing and paragliding.

The perfect infrastructure naturally includes the most modern ski lifts and a fun park. The 360° viewing platform at the mountain station under the summit cross offers a unique view: 500 peaks can be seen all around, from the three-thousanders of the main Alpine ridge to far into the Dolomites!

Cross-country skiers will find almost 40 km of wonderful and varied trails in the Maranza holiday region. Several toboggan runs guarantee fun for young and old, winter hiking, snowshoeing, ski tours, and night torchlight hikes are also part of the winter activity offering. Tired athletes can relax in the new indoor pool "Alpinpool Gitschberg Jochtal" with adventure and whirlpool and a modern wellness and sauna area.
