“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

A beautifully designed botanical garden in Merano. Big, spacious, extremely interesting and full of several different environments: the Woods is my favourite, with japanese woods, loads of bamboo varieties and plenty of water. Don't miss this place, it's fantastic!

“Excellent day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

The best botanical gardens I've ever been to. And I don't usually even like them. But we stayed 3.5 hours and only left because we were exhausted.

“Absolutely stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

The most beautiful and elaborate gardens I have ever seen with space given over to gardens from all around the world, great viewing platforms with amazing views across the valley. You can easily spend 4/5 hours there and still not see everything. Good restaurant there as well.

Wow these were truly the best gardens I've been to. My particular favourite area was the dahlias...beautiful. A lovely restaurant for a quick drink as well. Worth a half days visit.
