The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle in Meran and the surrounding area

Trauttmansdorff Castle Gardens The Botanic Gardens at Trauttmansdorff Castle are located at an altitude of 334-438 metres above sea level, a little above the much visited South Tyrolean spa town of Meran. The region’s ideal climatic conditions have made it possible to recreate over 80 natural and cultural landscapes from every corner of the earth.
Visitors can wander to their hearts’ content against the Alpine backdrop through an area covering 12 hectares with more than 3000 types of plant. Pavilions designed by artists lend Trauttmansdorff Castle’s Gardens an unmistakably exotic touch and combine art and nature in harmonious fashion. There are multimedia shows to tell you more about the creation of this horticultural paradise, and the “Tyrolean Stone World” through which you can walk whisks you away to another fascinating universe.
The Touriseum is a further highlight. As the name suggests, this is the museum for South Tyrolean tourism history. The museum offers an impressive insight to anyone who is interested into the history of tourism in the region. It is located within the walls of Trauttmansdorff Castle in the centre of the eponymous garden. Visitors can round off their visit to the Gardens and Touriseum with Mediterranean culinary treats and genuine South Tyrolean specialities in the Schlossgarten Restaurant.
