Castel Fragsburg - Merano, Dolomites, Italy - Luxury Hotel

Rooms & Suites: 20

Castel Fragsburg is a beautiful South Tyrol castle originally built as lodging for noble shooting parties, the feudal-lord's guests, and owners of neighboring castles.

High above the valley of Merano – nestling against the sundrenched southern slopes of the mighty Dolomites and commanding spectacular sweeping views over one of Europe’s most enchanting landscapes: this is Castel Fragsburg, a fine 17th century Hunting Retreat of noble origins, now the smallest luxury hotel in the region. Castel Fragsburg is privately owned since 1955 by the Ortner family, who continue to give the hotel remarkable character reflecting the unspoilt, vast landscape of the Dolomites and the vineyards and orchards of South Tyrol. As a member of Relais & Châteaux the Castle Fragsburg follows the philosophy ‘a unique home for a unique stay’ and is part of their ‘collection of the world’s finest restaurants and hotels’. From walking through flower-filled meadows to hiking along challenging mountain paths, the scenery is remarkable in the South Tyrol region. Seasonal golf, the Trauttmansdorff Castle Gardens and a celebrated annual music festival are also favorite activities. Day trips combine a visit to a local winery with an excursion to the awe-inspiring Dolomites or the refined Lake Garda region.
