The Roman milestone and the coachman's kitchen at the entrance to the Hanswirt are evidence of the long historical importance of the area. Follow in the footsteps of Empress Sissi and then reward yourself with a (perhaps slightly more modern) dress while shopping later on. The cities of Merano or Bolzano and their surrounding areas combine cultural and urban experiences in a unique way.
On your excursion through South Tyrol, don't miss Castle Tyrol, the most historically significant castle in the province, as well as the South Tyrolean Museum of Cultural and Regional History. You also shouldn’t miss out on an extended walk through the magnificent colours of the gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle, which have won several awards for their beauty.
For something very cool, the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology, the resting place of Ötzi, is the biggest international attraction in South Tyrol. Ötzi, the man from the ice, spent a staggering 5,000 years covered by glacier ice. It’s simply unbelievable how perfectly his cloak, straw shoes and cap have been preserved. His story, told at interactive multimedia stations, will undoubtedly amaze you.
