Prince’s Castle Museum

Of princes, historical arms and life in late medieval times - the Prince’s Castle Museum in Merano is well worth a visit

Built by archduke Sigismund of Austria right behind the local townhall, the small but mighty castle actually dates back to the 15th century.

Worth seeing in the Prince’s Castle Museum are the chapel with a fascinating 16th century fresco, the historical arms and a collection of historical instruments as well as antique furniture, kitchen utensils and portraits. Those interested in medieval history and culture have come to the right place!
