Tirolo is located at almost 600 m asl and is the heart of the homonymous municipality. The eye-catcher of the village is Castel Tirolo, which is the former seat of the Counts of Tyrol and name-giving for the entire land Tyrol. Since 1990 it hosts the South Tyrolean Provincial museum for culture and history. Another attraction for those who love culture is Castel Brunnenburg, hosting the Agricultural Museum.
By the way, Tirolo is only located a stone’s throw from the thermal city of Merano and you can therefore comfortably visit this charming city and make a shopping tour. Also is Tirolo characterised by a rather Mediterranean climate, similar to the one in Merano, making cypresses, olive trees and lime trees flourish and conferring a special atmosphere to the village.
Our tip: Visit the falconry with the Bird Care Centre at Castel Tirolo, which will not only enthusiast your kids.
