Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle

They were elected the “most beautiful gardens in Italy”
 
The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle are located just outside of Merano/Meran. The inspiring and vibrant Gardens cover an area of just twelve hectares yet are the most popular tourist attraction in South Tyrol. They comprise more than eighty garden worlds featuring plants from across the globe. The Gardens are in a constant state of flux: week after week, their appearance gradually shifts in a spectacular pageant of colours that carries one season right into the next.

The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle feature a series of botanical rarities and especially interesting plants that attract garden lovers and specialists from both near and far. At the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle, eleven Artist Pavilions take on botanical themes. Artfully aesthetic and at the same time educational, they explain botanical phenomena. Enthroned at the centre of the Gardens is Trauttmansdorff Castle: after a turbulent history of both glory and decay, the castle attained historical significance through sojourns made there by Empress Elisabeth of Austria. Elisabeth was considered to be a free spirit who abhorred conventional court protocol; she has inspired filmmakers and theatrical producers alike.
