After all, you will discover cultural monuments and natural treasures hidden around every corner. Have a look at some of our recommendations here. We still have some hidden gems to tell you when you arrive.

Schenna Castle
Travel through time behind thick walls

If the walls of Schenna Castle, built in 1350, could speak, they would probably have plenty to tell. The lord of the castle, who opens the high gates every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and guides you through the magnificent chambers and halls, is well aware of that too. Weapons from six centuries, a picture gallery and the largest private Andreas Hofer collection crown your visit to the castle.

Gigantic grave site

The mausoleum in which Archduke Johann and his family were buried sits next to the parish church on the church hill of Schenna and is one of the first and most beautiful neo-Gothic sacred buildings in South Tyrol. The burial site is made of the red sandstone and granite of the Ifinger. The Archduke's marble sarcophagus is located in the underground burial chapel.

A blooming paradise

The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle are home to one of the most beautiful seas of flowers in Europe. Over 200,000 tulips bloom here in spring. But that's not all: 12 hectares and 80 spectacular garden landscapes impress with their explosion of colour. From the botanical underworld to the Caribbean palm beach to the carnivorous plants - monotonous means nothing here.

Meran old town
The small town that has it all

It might rain, snow or be bathed in sun – the spa town of Meran never loses its shine and charm whatever the weather. Stroll along the magnificent promenades or through the arcades, where traders and merchants dealt and bartered as early as the Middle Ages. Boutiques, cafés, museums, markets, gardens, thermal baths: Meran is the city that has something for everyone.

State capital Bolzano
A melting pot of cultures

Stroll from shop to shop through the medieval arcades, stop at the fruit market on the way to see Ötzi and sip an aperitif on Waltherplatz: allow yourself be captivated by the special flair of Bolzano. In the state capital of South Tyrol, the mix of Italian and German culture, cuisine and language can be clearly seen.
