Discover South Tyrol’s culture
Starting from the hotel, the State capital Bolzano can be reached in 20 minutes by car. Bolzano, with its many shopping facilities in the historic arcades, the fruit market and a wide range of cafés and small wine stores, is definitely worth a visit.
The cultural life between mountain and valley is just as diverse and multifaceted as the landscape. Many museums, castles and fortresses invite to a discovery tour.
Tyrol Castle is the ancestral castle of the Dukes of Tyrol. The local rulers represented the State of Tyrol at Tyrol Castle for a thousand years until the political administration was finally relocated to the more conveniently situated town of Innsbruck in the 15th century.
An interactive course now leads through the castle, illustrating the milestones of the region’s history and art history. The Archaeological Museum in the castle provides a good overview over the first settlements in the alpine region beginning from the 7th century BC. A completely intact melting furnace system from the Bronze Age can be admired here. The ring wall, built around 1100, is one of the oldest still existing castle walls.
The two marble portals from the 12th century have also been restored to their old splendour. Rich in symbolic sculptures, they are some of the most original creations of Romanic art in Tyrol. The chapel with frescos from the 13th century accommodates the oldest Tyrolean stained glass and a mighty wood-carved crucifixion group from the 14th century.
