The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle, located on the eastern outskirts of Merano/Meran, boast more than 80 garden landscapes from around the world. The Gardens received the coveted International Garden of the Year Award at the Garden Tourism Conference in Toronto in 2013.

Set in a natural amphitheater around a central lily pond, the garden landscapes from around the world add spectacular color to the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle. Viewing platforms with interactive stations and artist’s pavilions serve as lookout points, with the Forbidden Garden (Verbotener Garten) and Botanical Underworld (Botanische Unterwelt) features ideally suited to families with children.

Trauttmansdorff Castle, where Empress Elisabeth of Austria (Sissi) would come in holiday, now houses the Touriseum, the first museum in the Alps comprehensively and exclusively dedicated to the history of tourism. Among the highlights of the museum is the circuit „250 Years of Tourism in Tyrol“.
