History & Story
Perched high above the valley, it was a jewel for Austro Hungarian holidaymakers in the days of the Imperial Court. Empress Elizabeth ( Sissi) used to spend her winter Holidays in Merano. The tradition of Hospitality and the Tyrolean aristocracy is still there and even more visible by the care provided by the hosts, the Ortner Family. Once a noble hunting lodge the 350 years old Castle stands on a rock that offers a stunning view over the noble vineyards, the impressive mountains, the castles and villages.
Take advantage of all of this on the beautiful Hotel terrace suspended over the valley, immersing yourself in an ocean of tranquillity and let yourself be pampered by the attentive staff in traditional dress, a symbol of ancient and noble ethics.
Nearly every year there are refurbishments work
Main Strengths, Special Touch
A retreat, to rediscover and express your inner source of inspiration. A particular philosophy of the fine art of living makes the Fragsburg so extraordinary: namely of enjoying every day in its unique glory, shaping each moment according to your own intuitive rhythm.
High above Merano, where the sensual charm of the Mediterranean meets wild Alpine romance, stands the Castel Fragsburg. Enthroned here since 1624, the boutique retreat enjoys the most hours of sunshine in the whole country. Entwined in wild vines, the hotel is set in an enchanted garden that stretches over 10.000 square meters around the Fragsburg. Wisteria, roses and hydrangea bloom all around. Visitors are immediately spellbound by the garden’s many charming corners and by the picturesque courtyard. And though the spa town of Merano, with all its lively culture and conviviality, lies only a stone’s throw away, the Fragsburg remains perfectly secluded. In the midst of the majestic mountain scenery of South Tyrol, it is a place of refuge where simple Alpine comfort complements sensuous Mediterranean flair.
