CASTEL FIRMIAN - MESSNER MOUNTAIN MUSEUM
In 2006 Reinhold Messner, the famous king of the 8000ers, opened his meeting place in one of the most charming historical sites in South Tyrol, Castel Firmiano. The permanent exhibition is based on the concept of the sacredness of the mountains, displaying sculptures, stuffed animals and symbolical objects which are mementoes of his climbing expeditions throughout the world. The history of the castle and of the entire South Tyrol area is told in the “Torre Bianca”.

CASTEL RONCOLO - THE ILLUSTRATED CASTLE
​Standing in a panoramic site, Castel Roncolo cherishes the Alps’ best preserved and most important cycle of profane frescoes. First mentioned officially in 1237, it was commissioned by the Vanga brothers and frescoed with scenes from court life and interesting quotations from contemporary literature, such as the cycle of Tristan and Isolde painted using the Verdaccio technique or the story of Garrello in the Summer house. The castle is reached from the romenade, by local bus service or by free shuttle bus from Piazza Walther.

CASTEL MARECCIO CASTLE
The ancient walls of the castle are steeped in a vineyard growing near the historical town centre. The view of the mansion is enchanting: on the one side the promenades, on the other the Catinaccio-Rosengarten mountain range, that make it one of the most spectacular sites of the city. It was renovated in the Eighties and is used as a congress centre, with several exhibition halls especially suited for high level meetings and seminars. The halls and the lovely loggia are enhanced by Renaissance frescoes.
