Meran - Distant approx. half an hour
Welcome to the Burggrafenamt holiday paradise!
Nestling amongst slopes covered in vineyards and orchards in the heart of South Tyrol, the villages of Dorf Tirol and Algund together with the spa resort of Meran make up the holiday paradise of the Burggrafenamt.
This sunny region, with the fascinating peaks of the Texel Group Nature Park rising majestically around it, suprises visitors with the impressive contrast it offers between Alpine and southern natural landscapes!

The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle
Meran in bloom – a must in the Meran area is a visit to the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle. In these spacious grounds you can see plants from all over the world and typical South Tyrolean landscapes. Gardens full of flowers extend along the slopes above Meran where Sissi once used to stroll. Paths meander up the slopes through water and terraced gardens, leading on to the „Garden of the Senses“, the Japanese Garden, a hill with cacti and succulents or to areas of southern cultivated plants such as olive trees and vines. The view opens out over the surrounding mountains. From March to November you can enjoy a rewarding visit, whether during the rhododendron blossom in spring, the rose and lavender blossom in summer or the blaze of colour in autumn in the Japanese garden. High up in the centre of the gardens stands Trauttmansdorff Castle, the landmark which gave the botanical gardens their name.

Meran, Dorf Tyrol and Algund – three places of historic importance. The spa town of Meran, in the Middle Ages the capital of the county of Tyrol, the village Dorf Tyrol with Tyrol Castle, formerly the family seat of the counts of Tyrol and Algund, already a main center on the Via Claudia Augusta in Roman times. Come see for yourself and experience Meran, Dorf Tyrol and Algund.
