1 April: season opens with three redesigned rooms

The Museum for Tourism at Trauttmansdorff Castle near Meran reopens on Tuesday, 1 April, with three completely redesigned rooms presenting the changes in tourism in South Tyrol over the last 15 years.

Three redesigned exhibition rooms

The Touriseum, the South Tyrol Museum for Tourism located in the midst of the botanical gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle near Meran, offers visitors an entertaining tour through 200 years of the history of tourism in Tyrol. The tour begins in 1800, when the Alps were still wild and unknown, and continues up to South Tyrol as a "product" established worldwide as a popular tourist destination.

The Touriseum has made good use of the winter break to expand the content of its permanent exhibition on the history of tourism: three completely redesigned rooms now present the most striking changes to occur over the last 15 years in the holiday land of South Tyrol, from the point of view of both tourists and locals alike.

The Touriseum at Trauttmansdorff Castle near Meran is open from Tuesday, 1 April to 31 October 2014 daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Fridays in June, July and August the Museum will also stay open until 11 p.m. and from 1 November to 15 November it is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
