South Tyrol has more than 800 forts, castles and stately residences with the highest concentration in Bolzano Bozen. Within these you find Maretsch Castle, situated near the historical centre of the capital. Today Maretsch Castle is mainly a congress center and can be hired for different occasions as meetings, exhibitions, concerts, weddings... But it is also one of the historical sights you should not miss when you come to Bolzano Bozen. You can visit the castle when no event is going on. During the 16th century, Maretsch Castle - like most medieval Tyroelan castles, was enlarged. Today you can see the rooms with the frescoes and you can enjoy a 360° panoramic view from the tower.
