The scenic Falkner-Promenade in Dorf Tirol will lead you out along a sunny hillside with wonderful views of two castles: Schloss Brunnenburg und Schloss Tirol. Both castles are homes to museums. Schloss Tirol, which gave its name to this province, houses the region’s museum of culture and history. In the Brunnenburg, you can visit the agricultural museum and the Ezra Pound Memorial Site.
After your programme of cultural activities, why not sit down on one of the many scenic benches and soak in the wonderful landscapes of the Untervinschgau region, the spa town of Merano and all the way out to the Etschtal valley.
Those springtime blossoms are a very special experience. The snow-covered peaks greet you from the horizon, while a sea of blossoms spreads out across the fruit fields in the valley below...
Medieval flair coupled with elements of Jugendstil!
A foray through the spa town of Merano will also take you on a journey through history. As the beloved Empress Sissi once did, stroll along promenades adorned with flowers, sense the joie de vivre amid medieval arcades, experience the grand lifestyle of the old Jugendstil houses.
If you love a beautiful garden, then those of Schloss Trauttmansdorff are an absolute must! A place where gardens from around the world are brought together: a Japanese garden along with a South Tyrolean farmhouse garden, sunflowers with cactuses, orchids with vineyards... allow yourself to be whisked away into a wondrous botanical world!
