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.

We really enjoyed our visit to the gardens. They are very extensive with a number of coffee shops. The bus service to and from the gardens is great so you don't need a car.

So this place was recommended to us by our Hotel and we were not disappointed. Even though in October, there was a lot that was not in bloom, it was still worth the trip. The views from up the side of the hill are spectacular (see photos). Even though it was fall there was a lot to see and on gains an appreciation for the variety of fauna that can grow in the region. It gets busier as the day rolls on so if you enjoy tranquility in garden settings, it's best to get there at opening.

The castle museum is different, but we went through the history of tourism part quickly to get to some of the castle rooms. The castle is deceiving in that it's actually larger than it appears, in terms of rooms.

I would love to return to see these gardens in full summer bloom.
