The gardens of Trauttmansdorff CastleOn the sunny slope above Meran, where once the Austrian Empress Sissi went for her strolls, are situated the terraced gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle. The gardens promise “the world in one garden”: ancient cultivated plants, the cacti and succulents mound, the Landscapes of South Tyrol, deciduous trees and conifers, tea- and rice terraces characterize the beautifully cared for gardens.
