In the centre of Merano you will find the castle built by archduke Sigmund in the 15th century, which he probably had built as a town residence. For centuries, the castle was the residence of the nobility; Emperor Maximilian was a guest here several times. Since 1875, the castle has been owned by the city of Merano, which had the complex restored in a historical manner according to plans by the architect Friedrich von Schmidt.
Today, the castle is open to the public and is also used for civil weddings.
