The view of the castle walking to it from Dorf Tirol is beautiful and picturesque. Continue past it for a different view perhaps before going in. This is a popular venue for families and larger groups with guided tours to be arranged. Reasonably priced

Beautifully settled and well maintained, it is a nice stop if you are in Merano or nearby areas. It is a museum on the history and culture of Tirol. Very educational, but also entertaining thanks to calm atmosphere and gorgeous views.

Very picturesque castle and location. Unfortunately, closed in the winter. I will plan to return in the summer to tour the inside and museum.
