  • We were on the hiking trip, and have made just here for coffee and cake. The Apple strudel did taste excellently. to recommend as well at the end of Hugo, and all very inexpensive. super nice views over the basin of Merano.

  • I haven't slept in this castle now used as a hotel, with 10 rooms and restaurant. I made a stop for refreshment every morning walking from Tirol. The impression is of an exclusive place with friendly staff. The location is enviable: is set on a Ridge with an extraordinary view of Tyrol, Merano and the Adige Valley.

  • This medieval castle, which many in the neighborhood, lovingly adapted for hotel purposes. You can come or come from Merano to the great number of ways: on foot, by cable car + on foot, by bus, by car. We have chosen the easiest the last option due to abnormal in Merano July heat, when hiking long walks are fraught with overheating of the body. Turnštejna have parking machines at 8 plus can be parked in the yard of a two-wheeled vehicles. Book a table on the terrace view is good, but not so high in the mountains, there is coolness. Had to ask inside, where happened to us full immersion in the middle ages: furniture, interiors, smells and the atmosphere in general-all on fair is prepared for a long time, but thoroughly. Local Tyrolean kitchen. With English difficulties, but we somehow agreed. I even elicited a vegetarian himself, no fees after lunch went to inspect the main local castles Castle Tirolo approximately 2 km from Castle Thurnstein, who was there during lunch in the dining room window. But that's another story ...

  • Typical cuisine of the area inside the renovated rooms of the Castle. If there is good weather should stand on the outdoor patio to enjoy the spectacular scenery. You can stop for a coffee and a snack

  • Castle Thurnstein - once built probably is Café, restaurant and hotel for the assurance of the supply route to Castle Tyrol - today. The property actually as picturesque to perched on the northern slopes of the Adige river, from where you can enjoy a magnificent view. Both restaurant and the terraces have a rustic, antique flair. We felt the kitchen during our two visits of the restaurant as very exquisite (also you get hot meals well beyond normal hours), the staff as very helpful; We had the impression that here is the guest, has a personal and friendly Word for everyone. Here you thought about maybe to spend his holiday. All in all so a 5-star establishment? The cuisine is exquisite but expensive as I said. Now, you pay just views and ambience with. To deduct a star rating for this would be so unjustified. Why there is still only 2 stars from us, than the highly irreverent and we felt very arrogant manner of management, which called us in a tone not comprehensible to leash our dog. Twice we visited Castle Thurnstein now – every time our dog was (unleashed). (To clarify: even if there have been no problems with the dog, he is by no means awesome with 30 cm in height, has an impeccable education, me at the foot sticks, I see it easily when it is desirable to carry a dog better on a leash.) To do this, we needed only a warning signs (which I might had overlooked?) or a notice on the part of the staff. What however freeze my sympathy on the spot, was just the extremely short-bound request by the Executive Board - without explanation and anyway without superfluous accessories like for example the word "please". The previous was, that a family member of the Executive Board first of all "had put it the"Höherrangigen"", that here is a dog not on a leash. This happened just as discreetly as "Affected" not to hear about it. So, I inquired what because there would be a problem. This was sent to himself, only once to do so, as you did not understand my question. I asked again and got then just above reply. I inquired further, because whoever the person, which I owe this information. She then called name and 'Rang'. As I've mentioned earlier understanding to leash a so obedient dog, if this desirable or whenever is required for whatever other reason. Only, clear the sound makes the music with me. And this dissonance wanted now doesn't fit to the above described flair by Castle Thurnstein. Now there can ever be a slip, only the didn't - happen how I want - take on the staff, but the Executive floor. The majority of the staff and the kitchen are very commendable to call. The employees take care of the guests and clearly it is they who are responsible for the flair at the Castle. It remains the owner, one gets the impression to be undesirable to the motto (as a dog owner?) simply "we don't need you here, the store runs so." Now, every reader of this review can decide how he is, what is important to him and test it yourself. I for my part see unkindness in the Executive Board as serious incompetence and transfer the way of the management of the restaurant also on the hotel. Thus, there are 3 star US withdrawal.
