Tirolo

The municipality of Tirolo is located only 6 km from Merano, on a sun-drenched panorama terrace.

The municipality of Tirolo has got some 2,500 inhabitants and stretches from Monte San Zeno at 600 m asl up to the Gruppo di Tessa nature park and the lake plateau of the Sopranes lakes at 2,500 m asl. Due to the drop in altitude of the municipal territory, the area of Tirolo is rather varied and rich in contrasts. The village itself, however, is characterised by cypresses, palm trees and oleander, that is to say a merely Mediterranean alpine vegetation. In higher altitudes, which are by the way ideal for hiking in summertime, alpine flowers and pine tree forests characterise the landscape, while the mountain peaks in the surroundings are often still snow-capped until summertime.

Close to the village, there is Castel Tirolo, which is a former seat of the counts of Tyrol and name-giving for Tyrol. Today the castle hosts the Provincial Museum of Cultural and Provincial History. Worth a visit are also the Muthof farmsteads, snuggling on the slopes of the Dosso della Muta mountain and belonging to the most ancient farms of Merano and surroundings.
