Castle of Schenna The Castle of Schenna was built around 1350 by Petermann of Schenna. Before it was purchased by the Archduke Johann in 1845, it was owned by the Starkenberger and the Lichtensteiner families. The castle has since been in the possession of and inhabited by the Earls of Meran. The manorial rooms accommodate a vast collection of arms, a picture and portrait gallery and numerous art-historical objects concerning the history of Tyrol.

Castel of Tirol The archeological museum provides an overall view about the early settlers (7 BC) in this alpine region. From the Bronze Age, there is a melting furnace, still fully intact to be seen. The main wall, built around 1100, remains one of the oldest and best preserved castle walls including parts of the battlements. Also to be wondered are the marble porches from the 12th Century. The original symbolic sculptures belong to the most creative Romanistic work in Tyrol. The chapel with Freskos from the 13th Century also has the oldest Tyrolean stained glass windows and an enormous wooden carved crucifix from the 14th Century.

Merano Thermal Baths Meran’s thermal baths are more than a further addition to the feel-good facilities at this well known health resort; they are an architectural highlight, too. The exciting glass and steel cube is the heart of the new spa complex on the south bank of the River Passer. The plaza created between the thermal baths and the hotel is the ideal place to sit and relax in the open-air café and an attractive meeting point for the resort as a whole.

South Tyrol Museum of Archeology Over 5000 years ago, a man climbed up to the icy heights of the Schnalstal glacier and died. He was found by accident in 1991, with his clothes and equipment, mummified and frozen: an archaeological sensation and a unique snapshot of a Copper Age man. For several years highly specialised research teams examined the mummy and the articles found with it. They have been on exhibit since March 1998 at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology.
