Prince’s Castle Merano
The Prince’s Castle shows maid’s rooms and life in late medieval times.
In 1470 a charming castle was built at the bottom of Monte Benedetto and at the heart of Merano’s city centre, with the aim to serve as a residence to archduke Sigismund of Austria. For centuries it was the administrative seat of counts and emperors; nowadays it houses a museum.
With its chambers, maid’s rooms and parlours it is the ideal place to study life in late medieval times. A bygone era is brought back to life with furniture from everyday life, kitchen tools, ceramic stoves, frescoes, portraits, musical instruments and weapons. Worth seeing!
