  • Small plush little Chateau in the Centre of Merano, unheated so it's freezing winter. The visit lasts just a little but if you are in the area deserves a pass.

  • The exhibition occupies two floors of the Castle and visit duration is less than an hour. The castle is not heated in the winter you can suffer the cold. Tickets cost €5 (concessions €4). There are audio guides, each room presents a written description. Very typical! Recommended!

  • One of the only place in the world where you can examinate furnitures of the early 16.th century.
  • Top!!!
  • A great little castle: really small in size if we compare to normal expectations you have for this kind of buildings. Great because it's wonderfully preserved and complete, so that everyone, young and old can get an idea of how it could be life at that time. Allow as few other times I happened to take a dip in that world of adventure and fantasy that he hopes to revive by visiting a castle. Is behind the town and walking through the Center is hard to miss, but worth a visit!

  • The most beautiful gothic style castle entirely now exists. Built before the fourteenth century and then enlarged in the 400 was used by Sigismund as a base during his travels. In Merano was the seat of the Mint and any business necessary to its needs. It is absolutely an interesting as there are inside unique exhibits of the era. Consider that most of the castles of the time did not have glasses, that here we find in abundance, which served to give light and warmth. It may seem that the bed is small but even here we must consider that the Gothic art tended to minimalism then the bed was small to save materials; consider also that there is no heating it tended to sleep in the fetal position. Nice find here a basin since at that time it was believed that the water were carrying bacteria and therefore not used to brush. A nod is right on the frescoes that adorn the walls. It seems that the green color is a shade only used by Sigismund in all its residences. GO VISIT IT! IS UNIQUE! And thank goodness that years ago the population opposed demolition established by the city administration.
