What people are saying about South Tyrol

Interesting and engaging visit, congratulations to Manuel, to his way of telling and describing the castle and its history, the time has flown, unfortunately. Time to take some pictures in the garden, have a coffee with pretzel and go down an alternative route. Beautiful morning, we definitely recommend it. Barbara
