South Tyrol will let you in on its secrets amidst ancient ruins and thick castle walls as you explore its many palaces and castles. Visit Tyrol Castle and its Province Museum for Cultural and History: you’ll enjoy views over the Adige Valley and be transported back to the time of the Counts of Tyrol. Follow in the footsteps of Empress Sissi, and explore the enchanting botanical Gardens of Trauttmannsdorf Castle or learn more about South Tyrolean history at the adjacent Touriseum. Let the past come to life and listen to the legends of knights at Runkelstein Castle—or visit the rest of South Tyrol’s 800 palaces, manors, and castles.
