  • I hit that place upon a bicycle tour 2005. This has been our rest day. Actually it turned out it was not. One needs a day to walk through this gardens. Very nicely prepared. So much work. Thank you all! I have been very impressed. Friendly people all over. That's "my" South Tirol A must see location. Recommended to go.
  • We went there for a day trip when it rained and it was still great. Nice garden with plenty of amazing views.
  • Wish we'd had more time here .. lovely garden on the hillside outside Merano .. plenty of quirky features and very well maintained
  • Amazing place, one of the most beautiful gardens complex of Europe overlooking the Meran valley and mountains.
  • You won't ever have seen something like this. If you are close by there is no real excuse not to go.
