Trauttmansdorff Castle near Meran, the former holiday residence of the Empress Elisabeth, now houses the delightful Regional Museum for Tourism, the Touriseum. Located in the heart of the Botanical Gardens, it is the first museum in the Alps dedicated to the history of tourism in Tyrol. Visitors can take an exciting journey through time through the various rooms that recount 200 years of the history of tourism from the point of view of both travellers and locals.

Horse-racing game from the "Meraner Fremden-Kasino"

Horse-racing game from the "Meraner Fremden-Kasino" (in the Meran Kurhaus), consisting of a black table with a green felt cover on which six horses with jockey figures go round on concentric tracks. The figures were moved using a handle. Players could bet a certain amount on a particular rider. Together with a wheel of fortune, the game was used for instance at the Easter celebrations of 1914. It was confiscated by the authorities in the same year.
