Garden Nights at the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle in Merano

Open-air world music concerts set amidst palm trees and water lilies

Garden Nights

The Water Lily Pond and its Lake Stage – the spectacular setting for Trauttmansdorff’s open-air world music concerts – is the beating heart of Merano’s botanical garden from June through August. In keeping with its theme, Plants from Around the World, Trauttmansdorff presents world-class concerts highlighting music from different continents. The open-air concert series has become one of the most important world music festivals in Italy, and has already brought well-established musical stars to the floating stage at the Water Lily Pond at the botanical gardens: past guests have included The Original Wailers, Buena Vista Social Club, Milow, Marit Larsen and Emiliana Torrini.

Reduced admission tickets and passes such as Summer Nights Tickets, Season Passes, and Mini Season Passes are not valid on Garden Nights evenings.

Concerts take place outdoors, and are not necessarily canceled due to weather conditions. Seating areas are not roofed. Refunds are not available in the case of inclement weather. (Subject to change)
