  • I was with family in early November a path surrounded by nature; flowers plants trees waterfalls and animals. Include water features and rope bridges fun for kids and not only! Inside great restaurant with veranda. With a beautiful sunny day.

  • We went into the gardens of Princess Sissi on a November morning. The grounds are really magnificent shame being fall we couldn't enjoy the magnificent colors of blooming plants! Recommended for visitors to Merano and wants to go for a walk in the Green! Poor the Museum within the Park. In our opinion, very suitable for families with children! We shot most of the Park in 2 hours Recommended

  • During the summer an experience not only for gardening enthusiasts. Various themed worlds: forest garden with miniature gardens, Sun gardens with Mediterranean flair, water and terraced gardens with European garden art and finally to landscapes of in South Tyrol, America and Asia. Excellent condition. Different round and Panorama trails, mostly suitable for prams, some stairs. Informative map. The difference in height within the plant is 100 meters. Sufficient toilets, parking outside the facility. Catering and kiosk.
