Step by step, stair by stair, upwards, ever upwards: A steel staircase in the imposing tower takes you to the viewing platform 20 metres above the street. Whether you are afraid of heights or not, the magical view from the powder tower onto Merano’s old town and the entire Burggrafenamt district can quickly turn vertigo to exhilaration. First documented in the 14th century, you can not only experience a fantastic panorama here, but also a piece of Merano’s history.
