The Prince's Castle is right in the heart of Merano, and it was used by the Tyrolean Princes during their stays in the city. In 1875 it was at risk of being demolished, but it was saved thanks to tradition-conscious inhabitants of Merano. Today it is used for weddings (lower hall), and displays insights into the medieval life habits, thanks to the collections on display of furnitures, kitchen utensils, portraits, musical instruments and weapons. A small jewel, well worth a visit.

if you are a fan of middle centuries history this place is for you. The place is refurbished but looks very real. That's how nobility used to live in 15 century. A lot of details... Wooden panels on the walls, wooden floors, furniture, the stove... You will not be disappointed.

A real little gem this tiny castle with lots of late medieval artifacts. Just a stone throw from the pedestrian area. Google places it all wrong. Don’t miss the music instruments in the virgin chamber ! If you have a MuseoCard for Südtirol it’s included.

Small but really delightful little castle in the centre of Merano's old town. There is even a British connection, as it was a home for the Scots princess Eleanor who married a 15th century Archduke of Tyrol.

hidden behind the Merano town hall, very close to the busy Lauben is this small castle that is in fact a big house, the residence of the Principe when in town. It gives a splendid view on the way people (high society !) lived in those days. Not easy to access and with a lot of stairs and narrow passages, but definitely worth jumping in for a quick visit
