Places worth seeing

Tirol Castle
Ancestral castle of Tyrol and provincial museum of history and culture.
The archeological museum provides an overall view about the early settlers (7 BC) in this alpine region. From the Bronze Age, there is a melting furnace, still fully intact to be seen.
The main wall, built around 1100, remains one of the oldest and best preserved castle walls including parts of the battlements. Also to be wondered are the marble porches from the 12th Century. The original symbolic sculptures belong to the most creative Romanistic work in Tyrol. The chapel with Freskos from the 13th Century also has the oldest Tyrolean stained glass windows and an enormous wooden carved crucifix from the 14th Century.

Brunnenburg Castle
Brunnenburg Castle - Agricultural Museum and Ezra-Pound Centre for Literature
The Brunnenburg Castle is said to be named after a nearby spring and lies on a glacial hill between the village centre and Tirol Castle. The fortresses date from between 1241 and 1253. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Brunnenburg was privately purchased and restored. Today it is a cultural centre and home of the South Tyrolean Agricultural museum.

St. Peter's Parish Church
Local history tells that one of the oldest Baptist churches of the surroundings was rising on this beautiful square. Today, the Parish Church stands on an even older site dating back to the preromanesque period (lombard-carolingian architecture) and is one of the rare examples of a cross-domed church with central nave and side naves.
In 1287 Count Meinhard II of Tyrol transferred the patronage to the Cistercian monastery of Stams in the Oberinntal valley. Until today, St. Peter belongs to the spiritual welfare of that monastery. The lombard-carolingian church was given a thorough renovation under the regime of Meinhard; further modifications were made in the Gothic period. The church is rich in precious Romanesque and Gothic frescos. The southern side nave shows an especially well-preserved half-length portrait of St. Paul dating back to the 11th century.
Info: Opening times from 9am - 6pm between April and October.

St. Johannes (St. John the Baptist) Parish Church
The Parish Church of Dorf Tirol was first mentioned in a document in 1164, although it already existed years before (probably as Baptist church for the region). The Parish Church is considered to be the oldest Missionary- and St. John Baptist Church of the surroundings. In its later years, the Romanesque church (the Romanesque tower is still preserved today) was extended by the addition of a Late Gothic choir.
One of the most interesting furnishings in the Parish Church is the baptismal font made of white Laas marble which dates from the beginning of the 16th century. Also the church organ with a large quantity of antique wooden and metal pipes represents a remarkable masterpiece from an artistic and historical point of view. The New Gothic high altar, the bishop's figures, the St. John's statue above the baptismal font, oil paintings and the crucifixion group are other beautiful works of arts.
The renovation works of the Parish Church in 1969/70 brought to light the Secco-paintings from the year 1480.
