Castle Tyrol is the residence castle of the Counts of Tyrol - it gave the province of Tyrol its name. In addition to the wonderful view of the Adige Valley and the Vinschgau, you can also discover a great deal of history here:
Exhibits and exhibitions on medieval culture and regional history are shown in 15 rooms.
The circular wall of the castle was built around 1100 and is one of the oldest preserved castle walls. The two marble portals from the 12th century also shine in historical splendour.
Rich in symbolic sculptures, they are among the most original creations of Romanesque art in Tyrol.
The chapel with frescoes from the 13th century contains the oldest Tyrolean glass painting and a mighty wood-carved crucifixion group from the 14th century.
