Located on the beautiful mountain road between Merano and Bolzano, this unusual establishment is a traditional Tyrolean farm managed by Frau Rohrer that caters mainly to the local vacationers. It is best reached by car although there are buses going to Verano from Merano. The farm is located on a meadow complete with cows and forest — clearly evoking images of Heidi. One can also take beautiful walks from the farm. In the summer and on sunny days, the terrace is the place to enjoy the amazing vistas, beer, coffee or one of Rohrer’s specialty pies and cakes. The beautiful old stube or dining room is preserved from the 19th century as is evident when looking at the patina of the wood. This Tyrolean stube manages to conjure an archaic Alpine universe bordering on the tribal, a world that is slowly vanishing. Not surprisingly, the food is simple and as is often the case in the region, solid. Traditional Tyrolean dishes such as sauerkraut, wurst (sausage), knödel (dumplings), goulash, barley soups, and roast beef with vegetables dominate the menu. The service is very slow on busy days and weekends should be avoided.
