The Touriseum, the South Tyrolean Museum of Tourism, is located at Trauttmansdoff Castle.
Opened in 2003, the South Tyrolean Museum of Tourism was thought as a further attraction to the visitors of the stunning Botanic Gardens of Castel Trauttmansdorff. In a stimulating and entertaining manner it shows the historical development of tourism in South Tyrol, the most important events in the history of tourism in Tyrol and information on the 700 years of history of Trauttmansdorff Castle.
Holidaymakers and travellers can kinda watch themselves in this museum, together with their motives for travelling, their behaviour, illusions and expectations. On the second floor of the castle, however, a small exhibition on the Empress Elisabeth of Austria (Sissi) and her time in Merano can be found.
How to get there? Just take bus no. 1B or no. 4 in the city centre. The Touriseum and the Botanic Gardens of Castel Trauttmansdorff are accessible with one common ticket, for families with a family ticket.
