  • We visited the garden during a weekend of pleasant discoveries. I found this beautiful paradise corner of Merano, with its paths to appreciate one step at a time, the flowers, the scents and the different botanical areas that build a small world to get lost and be lulled.

  • During the warmer seasons worth a trip! Beautiful garden landscapes, parrots, butterflies and lovely plants plants. Worth seeing are also viewpoints such as the "Watcher".

  • The castle is very beautiful and interesting. also houses the Museum of tourism, which illustrates the latter and its changes from the end of the eighteenth century. the gardens are something really beautiful, the most beautiful thing I've seen so far. There are 11 pavilions, each with a different environment, developed for more than 10 hectares. the water garden with water lilies then is truly unique. There is also a bar and restaurant at reasonable prices.
