Did you know that the doctors finding out about the curative properties of Merano's waters were actually Jewish? And that they were also present when offering Merano's vinotherapy for the first time?
All this happened in the late 19th century, at time when the Jewish community of Merano was particularly active. Several buildings were raised, among them a Jewish cemetery, a synagogue and a sanatorium. It is right this synagogue that today houses the Jewish Museum with its documents and objects.
Despite careful control we cannot guarantee the correctness of the provided data.
The synagogue and the museum stay closed on Saturdays and on Jewish holidays.
The key to the Jewish Cemetery is available at the Merano Jewish Museum.
