For the 9th time in a row some of the world’s best kayakers will battle it out for the legendary title of the “King and Queen of the Alps”.


The Location

Merano is one of the most varied and touristicaly noted regions in the Alps. Situated at the foot of numerous 3000 peaks, Merano is renowned for its warm climate and unique vegetation. Merano offers a vast majority of recreational activities, with a huge scope to provide specifically to the outdoors.


where to sleep

Of course one of the main problems when you are on the way is where to sleep!

At the event place (Sportplatz Moos in Passeier) we have a campsite spot for the participant. The place is a simply park place with sanitary facilities.

Anyway if you are looking for something more comfortable the valley is full of B&B.

We also recommend Camping Zögghof. The 2015 built four-star campsite, embedded in a beautiful mountain setting in St. Leonhard in Passeier.
