Garden Nights at the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle in Merano

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

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.
