Not to be missed around Anderlahn
Partschins lies in an idyllic location, surrounded by vineyards and apple trees, at the entrance to the Vinschgau Valley, 8 km from the spa town of Meran. Narrow alleys, historic buildings, village inns, taverns and cafés with sunny terraces invite you to stop and treat yourself to a tasty break. Here, in the mild Alpine climate between imposing peaks and lush alpine meadows, nature shows its most beautiful side.
Only 20 minutes by bus or 2.5 hours along the irrigation channels, you won't believe your eyes: Palm trees and a Mediterranean atmosphere characterise the scenery, while the snow-capped peaks of the nature park can still be seen in the background. In Meran, a visit to the museum, a walk along the Passer river, shopping under the arcades and the most beautiful botanic garden in Italy at Trauttmansdorff Castle await you.
Today, Bozen is famous for its several attractions. For example, the mummy Ötzi can be admired in the Archaeological Museum, numerous fairs on a variety of themes attract thousands of visitors and seven museums and four castles and palaces offer a lively programme for those interested in culture. In the arcades, on the other hand, one is won over by the charm of the little big city and a Thun angel is certainly a nice holiday souvenir for those who have stayed at home.
What to see in Partschins and Meran
In memory of Peter Mitterhofer, the inventor of the typewriter, the municipality of Partschins established a museum in 1998. With over 2,000 objects, 400 of which are exhibited in the museum and about 1,600 in a separate exhibition room, the museum offers a comprehensive view of the 120-year history of the development of the typewriter.
1000 m² of adventure facilities on three floors for admiring, discovering and driving. Various model railways (locomotives, wagons, etc.), South Tyrol in miniature and fantastic landscapes. With more than 20,000 individual objects, the museum houses one of the largest private model railway collections in Europe.
The castle with its many details takes you back to the Middle Ages and from which the province of Tyrol takes its name. In the castle tower, you can get to know South Tyrol from a historical perspective. And what would the Middle Ages be without birds of prey? In the bird centre near the stately home, you can admire the kings of the air in breathtaking flight demonstrations.
More than 5,000 years ago, a man climbed the icy peaks of the Schnalstal valley glaciers and died there. In 1991, he was found by chance by a couple of tourists together with his clothes and equipment, mummified and frozen. This is a unique archaeological find and a snapshot into the world of a Copper Age man. After several years of investigation by highly specialised research teams, the mummy and accompanying artefacts have been open to the public in the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology since March 1998.
The gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle on the eastern outskirts of Meran are a must-see! They are surrounded by an oak forest and extend over twelve hectares. In this special place you will find plants from all over the world. If you are interested in the history of tourism in South Tyrol, visit the Touriseum.
It is considered the most beautiful Art Nouveau building in the entire Alpine region. The building is also worth a visit from an acoustic point of view and makes every concert a listening experience. Special feature: the annual Merano Music Weeks, starting at the end of August, are a meeting point for the world's best orchestras and conductors.
