High above Merano, where the sensual charm of the Mediterranean meets wild Alpine romance, stands the Relais & Châteaux Castel Fragsburg since 1624. The luxury hideaway is nestled on a private hill with only 20 unique suites and it is set in an enchanted garden that stretches over 50.000 m² around the Fragsburg. 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. 

The Fragsburg has been fashioned with love and devotion into an artful composition of antique furniture, expertly selected designer pieces and a touch of Art Deco. Originally an historical hunting lodge, since the 1950s the castle has gradually and lovingly been brought up-to-date by the Ortner family - showing an impeccable eye for beauty and a heartfelt sense of nostalgia. The 20 suites of the castle hotel, each of them designed meticulously down to the last detail, are confessions to the pure joy of simply lingering. 
In our Michelin starred Gourmet Restaurant Prezioso, we love to amaze and astonish our guests. No matter how many times we step out onto our glass loggia and look out over the parapet of the panorama terrace at the stunning, cinematic views of Merano, we always find something new to marvel at in the ravishingly beautiful natural surroundings. There couldn’t be a more ideal setting for the exquisite dishes prepared by our head chef Egon Heiss. Such as the Fragsburg itself the culinary philosophy is deeply rooted in the South Tyrolean traditions and closely linked with an Alpine and Mediterranean sensuality. In the Restaurant Orangerie you can choose your culinary “pièce de résistance” of the day from the à la carte menu or enjoy five-course meals as part of the half-board package. 

The potent energy of pure plants and flowers forms the basis for the Alchemistic Healing Spa Castellum Natura, the first of its kind in the world, and inspired by the ancient medicinal wisdom of herbalist Renate de Mario Gamper. All of the nurturing essences in use here stem from her recipes and are freshly produced using handpicked ingredients in our spa studio. 
Our sun-drenched relaxation room and sauna area boast unimpeded views of our Mediterranean garden alongside the rugged mountains and gentle rolling hills in the Texel Group Nature Park. You will enjoy fine pearls of steam, heat and tranquility in one of our 4 saunas.

Castel Fragsburg is located beneath its very own castle, which can we visited exclusively by the hotel guests and it is the perfect event location for weddings, celebrations, meetings and incentives.
