A truly unforgettable experience. This is a wonderful retreat, and I would encourage you to stay at least 3-4 nights to relax and take full advantage of all the exquisite amenities. The staff could not be more welcoming. Take time to explore Merano and its environs as well. It is difficult to imagine how Fragsburg could be improved. Special thanks...

I chose Fragsburg after reading reviews about all 5-stars in the area and the location together with the Relais&châteaux stamp made us chose it. And what a good choice! We now have a fond memory of our stay there and would definitely stay there again if in the region. The location first. Like a balcony above the flat valley where...

I have been going to Castel Fragsburg for several years. While each stay has been quite memorable, I am continually surprised that 'improvements' are made - how does one improve on Paradise? From the friendly and helpful Staff, to wonderful and inventive food served breakfast to dinner and every time in between, to comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms with fabulous...

We very rarely visit a place twice, but Castel Fragsburg we have visited three times, so far... It is a fantastic hotel with a secluded ambiance, still being close to "civilisation" if needed The rooms are nice and bright with a sense of Tyrole and include all needed extras. The restaurant proves that you can mix traditional cuisine with a...

My husband and I drove to Castel Fragsburg from Venice, arriving in the late afternoon. We were warmly greeted by genuinely friendly and gracious staff from the car park to Reception to a dining area where we were served complimentary aperitifs and delicious hors d’oeuvres.

I stayed here with my boyfriend in July. The room was just awesome. Our welcome was lovely, the food is great! The staff is very attentive. The spa was a bit odd, I have stayed at less nice places in the area with nicer spas.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
High above the valley of Merano – nestling against the sundrenched southern slopes of the mighty Dolomites and commanding spectacular sweeping views over one of Europe’s most enchanting landscapes: this is Castel Fragsburg, a fine 17th century Retreat of noble origins, now the smallest luxury hotel in the region. Castel Fragsburg is privately owned since 1955 by the Ortner family, who continue to give the hotel remarkable character reflecting the unspoilt, vast landscape of the Dolomites and the vineyards and orchards of South Tyrol. As a member of Relais & Châteaux the Castle Fragsburg follows the philosophy ‘a unique home for a unique stay’ and is part of their ‘collection of the world’s finest restaurants and hotels’. ... more   less
