High above Merano, Castel Tirolo looks down majestically from its majestic spot on the hill. This was once the main residence of the Counts of Tyrol… today, it gives its name to the neighbouring village of Tirolo. Yet, it’s not just this village, rather the entire region of Tyrol, that has been shaped by its history. Today, the castle houses the South Tyrolean Museum of Culture and Provincial History, where you can learn all there is to know about the history of the province of Tyrol. Alongside your visit to the museum, why not drop into the Castel Tirolo bird sanctuary to watch impressive birds of prey and take part in a unique flying display? This is an unmissable experience for the whole family.
The museum is open to the public from mid-March to early-December (closed Mondays). Private tours for groups can be arranged on request.
