I Giardini di Castel Trauttmansdorff reviews
Even in late September these gardens allow for a pleasant visit. Perfectly maintained, lots of information, superb setting. Lots of visitors too! It must be even better in spring. more »
We went here on a cloudy day with a few rain showers, this didn’t make the experience any less enjoyable. The garden is large, but the different areas are well signposted. As well as the plants there.... more »
Absolutely wonderful and worth a visit, a place where you can relax and explore the beauty of nature, we thought that it was an hour or two hours visit but we ended up spending most of the day. The place is well organized with signs of the various garden areas so you won't get lost. There are viewing platforms too, benches to get most of the amazing views, different kind of flowers and trees. There's a restaurant if you get hungry. Parking area is wide. Ticket cost is 14€.
Have to admit Jeab was driving this visit. Honestly, really enjoyed. Property is gorgeous with a wonderful layout to keep interesting. Colors, smells, grapes and fruits all over and the Italian Fountains are always fun.
