Owner description: Insights into exotic Mediterranean landscapes and views of the surrounding mountain chains and sun-kissed Merano: The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle comprises eighty natural and cultivated landscapes nestled into a natural amphitheatre, a wide array of themed gardens, and numerous Artist Pavilions and Experience Stations. Visitors find the extraordinary combination of nature, culture and art at South Tyrol's most popular attraction absolutely enchanting. The interplay of historical and contemporary architecture, a rich variety of events, and seasonal blooming throughout the course of the year all make Trauttmansdorff an experience for all five senses and for visitors of all ages. After being named Italy's Most Beautiful Garden in 2005 and Europe's No. 6 Garden in 2006, Trauttmansdorff was honored with the International Garden of the Year award in 2013, thus joining the ranks of the world's most important and beautiful gardens and parks. The Touriseum, the spirited museum housed inside Trauttmansdorff Castle, now spotlights recent tourism history and features new exhibits about the castle's VIP guests.

This is one of the finest gardens in the world. The range of plants & trees, the design & scale of the plantings, the size & age of certain specimens - all are outstanding. Allow a minimum of 3 hrs, easy to stay longer (some doze by the lake in a deck-chair).

The castle part holds a museum to tourism, which was very interesting to see how the area has developed over the years.
The gardens are very extensive and well kept. Ideal for families or couples of all ages. A great selection of plants from all over the world
There are plenty of toilets and cafe areas.
13 euros entry for adults, well worth it
