Nature & culture
Visitors to Tirolo near Merano will discover a varied natural and cultural landscape
From the orchards and vineyards at around 600 meters above sea level up to the Spronser Seen lakes at 2,500 meters, Tirolo reveals fascinating nature that is both Alpine and Mediterranean in flavor. And the culture and history have a big impact on the local landscape too. Out and about on themed trails and promenades visitors will stumble upon witnesses to an eventful past. These include Tirol Castle, the most important monument to Tyrolean history, the Brunnenburg, and churches and sights such as the early-Romanesque Church of St. Peter and the Bird Care Center. Tirolo, however, is also synonymous with tradition and custom. Over the course of the year, countless cultural events are held here: from the musical Tyrolean Spring of Culture and the culinary festival So kocht Dorf Tirol (How Tirolo Cooks), to the melodious Soirées at Tirol Castle and the VinoCulti wine festival, the events are as diverse as Tirolo itself.
