  • How every Merano holidaymakers were also the gardens of Castle TRAUTTMANSDORFF on the plan. See all (gardens and Castle) you should plan well 4-5 hours. At least we took so long without schedule a big break for dinner. We have with the has left along forest road at the entrance, what turned out for us as well, because we at the end only to the Lake came and could enjoy the sea of flowers (with autumn flowers) according to many trees and bushes at the end. Who has not so much time and want to see mainly flowers should go so right at the entrance to the Lake. The gardens are set in part on a slope so that you always back up and down must be running (although possible but at some point surely exhausting with wheelchair or stroller). Most of the roads are well developed. Who is walking also can go narrow stairs. The advantage is that these routes are mostly empty. The Castle contains an informative Museum about the history of tourism and of course the part about Sissi.
