In addition to varied hiking trails and countless options for active holidaymakers, Tirolo also has a wealth of sights and special attractions. In the Alpine-Mediterranean Tirolo landscape history-lovers and culture fans will encounter castles, forts and churches that testify to a fascinating past. Tirol Castle
, formerly the family seat of the counts of the same name, now houses the regional museum of history and culture and takes visitors on an exciting journey through time. Not far from here is the Brunnenburg
with its agricultural museum and the Bird Care Center
where birds of prey demonstrate their flying skills twice a day. Interesting insights into the past are also provided by forts and manor houses such as Auer and Thurnstein castles, as well as churches such as those of St. Peter and St. Rupert as former centers of spiritual life.
