The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle (Gärten von Schloss Trauttmansdorff), located in the town of Merano (Meran) in northern Italy, is a botanical garden. The garden is nestled into a twelve-hectare amphitheatre with an altitude differential of 100 meters. More than eighty garden landscapes contain plants from all around the world.
We visited the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle during our holiday in Austria (Pitztal) in 2015. We drove via the Timmelsjoch pass with it’s magnificent views on the alpine mountains. The weather started initially sunny, but it became cloudy and turned at the end of the day into a very heavy rain shower on the way back to Austria. Although it was cloudy with a strange colour I still managed to get reasonable photos.
