The garden city of Merano! Here I breathe and relax... and at every moment I understand why Empress Sissi loved this city so much. A special place in Merano are the botanical gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle. More than 80 garden landscapes with plants from all over the world bloom and thrive on 12 hectares. Adventure stations, themed gardens, artists’ pavilions and a lake stage make these botanical gardens a true world of adventure: In the grounds of the botanical gardens there is also the Touriseum museum. In an original way the Touriseum conveys 200 years of the history of tourism in Tyrol and Merano.
