With its Mediterranean climate, the town of Meran on the River Passirio is a popular destination for holidaymakers. It has also been famed far and wide as a spa resort since the 19th century.
The Trauttmansdorff Castle botanic gardens in Meran have been astounding visitors since 2001. Amongst other sights, the 80 colourful garden landscapes from all over the world over 12 hectares of land and the tourism museum “Touriseum” are well worth a look.
Situated just above the city of Meran and visible for miles around, Tyrol Castle in Tirolo is the former seat of the Counts of Tyrol. Today, the majestic castle houses the South Tyrol Museum of Cultural History and a falconry.
