  Maretsch Castle
by GentleSpirit
 
 

Though the castle dates from 1194, the present castle dates from the 16th century, when the Romer family renovated it with a lot of frescoes and religious paintings. After many changes of ownership, it is in the hands of the city of Bolzano/Bozen since 1974.

the location is right in the valley, surrounded by vineyards, only a few hundred meters from the city center. There are now guided tours and if you are interested the frescoes in the castle are pretty nice.

Mon-Fri: 10 a.m.-12.30 p.m./2 p.m.-5.30 p.m.
some parking available.
