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.

These gardens have a perfect layout to entice you to spend a day strolling the paths and inspecting all the different varieties of plants there. Highlights for us were the range of dahlias and the tropical greenhouse. It would have been nice to do the Botanical underworld in English (at the time we went the languages were alternating between Italian and German), and it's just bad luck for us that the aviary was filled with birds that we find in our back yard at home but it didn't take away from the overall experience. We were here for about 3 hours but could easily have stayed longer.

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).
