The Castle

Today the Castle halls host the interesting Museum of Natural History of Mount Baldo and Lake Garda, which exhibits numerous findings and illustrative tables of the native species of flora and fauna in the Garda territory. One of the halls, the ex-gunpowder magazine built by the Austrians, is dedicated to Goethe and exhibits several sketches that depict views of the lake and Malcesine Castle realised by the poet on occasion of his 'travels in Italy'.

Besides offering a relaxing cultural parentheses, visiting the Castle permits observation from the artillery platform, known as the 'revelino' and especially from the top of the tower, where there is a complete and fascinating panoramic view of the entire territory, a grandiose spectacle that will definitely be impressed upon your memory.
