Did you know that Lebenberg Castle above Tscherms, near Meran, is one of the largest, fully furnished castle complexes in South Tyrol? You didn’t? No wonder, with so many castles and palaces it’s hard to keep track of them all.
Lebenberg Castle was built in the 13th century and rebuilt several times throughout the centuries, which is why you can now admire different architectural styles from different eras. The picturesque castle is surrounded by a rococo ornamental garden. The castle, which is still inhabited today, houses a museum where you admire an armoury collection and a large family tree fresco. Moreover, you can enjoy a wonderful view over the Adige/Etsch valley from the angled courtyards and the Gothic chapel.
