Sissi's Path: strolling the imperial trail through Merano

The most famous and popular theme trail in Merano/Meran is the Sissi Path, dedicated to Empress Elisabeth of Austria. This walking path connects the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle with the city center over eleven stages and sights.

Among these stages are Rubein Castle, where in 1870 part of the imperial entourage was housed, and Rottenstein Castle, where Sissi herself once had her residence, as well as the Hotel Bavaria, whose name is a reminder of Karl Theodor, Sissi's favorite companion and an ophthalmologist from Merano. The walk concludes along the spa promenade in front of the Kurhaus. Of course, you can also travel the same route in the opposite direction.
