This castle was built on Medieval ruins around 1850. Today it houses the Museum of Tourism. Its name is Touriseum. This museum houses lots of items related to the history of tourism in Alto Adige; pictures, dresses etc.

Around the castle there is a big botanical garden. Here you can enjoy the so called Garden of the Sun with various kinds of orange, lemon and olive trees. There are two small lakes and one bigger with an islet inside. Among the other spots here you can see a Japanese garden, a catcti area, and an aviary with some parrots and other birds.

Address: Via San Valentino, 51 A. Maia Alta.
Directions: Take a bus in front of the train station in Merano (n. 4 or 1 B). Otherwise you can go there by foot. You will take one hour or more to get there. Ask for the direction. Castel Trauttmansdorff is located some 2 km. east of Merano.
