Events for Merano Locals and Tourists Alike

Enjoy a wide array of events at Merano’s most spectacular venue

During the garden season, the events presented by the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle are an important part of what makes Merano so attractive. Sunday-morning brunches on the Sissi Terrace are as popular with the locals as they are with visitors; this is also true for balmy summer evenings spent at the Water Lily Pond and the top-flight Garden Nights concerts that take place on the Lake Stage. The program of events is supplemented by annual theme days and one-time events conceived especially for the gardens. Be sure to browse our calendar of events before your visit!

Spring

Start Season 2020

Unfortunately, due to national regulations to prevent the spread of Coronavirus/ Covid-19, we have to postpone the opening of the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle and the Touriseum until 4 April. In the meantime, we are looking forward to your visit!
