Very close to the historic center of Bolzano, yet surrounded by greenery, is Maretsch Castle.
Nestled in a vast vineyard landscape and with a magnificent panorama of the rose garden, you will find Maretsch Castle in the center of the city of Bolzano, more precisely at the water wall promenade. The construction dates back to the 12th century. The oldest tower of the castle was built in 1194 by Berthold von Maretsch, according to written documents one of the plenipotentiaries of the Counts of Tyrol and then judge in Bolzano. At the beginning of the vineyards, only the massive keep was visible, which can still be seen today.In the 1980s, the plant was gently renovated, but is currently no longer inhabited. Today Maretsch Castle serves as a trade fair, concert and event center, weddings are held here and in the spring the traditional "Bozner Weinkost" takes place at Maretsch Castle.
