Trauttmansdorff Castle

One of the most famous attractions of Meran/Merano, which is especially appropriate for a town of parks and gardens, is the magnificent botanical garden. Paths meander uphill through water gardens and terraced gardens, leading to the Sensual Garden or the Japanese Garden, to the hillocks of cacti and succulents or to cultivated plants of the south, like the olive tree and the grapevine. Trauttmansdorff Castle, in the middle of the Gardens, houses an interesting Museum of Tourism.
