The old manors, narrow alleyways and traditional farmsteads
in the small village center have a timeless fascination. Along the old Roman road, the Via Claudia Augusta, the churches and the old limestone kiln in the Quadrat quarter still bear witness to the centuries-long and eventful history of Parcines/Partschins.
In Parcines and its environs there are no less than three museums
: the Typewriter Museum
) takes its name from the inventor of the typewriter, Peter Mitterhofer; the Train World Museum
) , a digitally controlled miniature scale model of South Tyrol with a moving railway and the K.u.K Royal & Imperial Bad Egart Museum
. This museum and restaurant is located at the oldest hot spring in Tyrol and is packed with artifacts dating from the Habsburg era. The old half-buried wartime bunker
cut into a nearby rock face is one of many owned by the artist Matthias Schönweger, in which to house his own art installations.
