Soul luxury for gourmets, romantics & wellness lovers
This Castle is certainly the ideal for romantics and wellness mountain lovers. High above the imperial town of Merano, Castel Fragsburg has been sitting up there for nearly 400 years well rooted in the rock soil.
Today it is the most intimate star hotel in South Tyrol, widely popular for its delicious gourmet cuisine, it owns the first alchemical spa in the world and an outstanding scenic location within vineyards and forests. It is a “boutique retreat” of more than 45,000 square meters which confines with the highest waterfall in South Tyrol.
When you cross the entrance you feel like you’re stepping out from space and time, feeling carried in an ancient forgotten fairy tale.
Wisterias, roses, jasmines, and hydrangeas grow up everywhere, and you will enjoy a merge of sweet scents and colors in a peaceful atmosphere between the imposing mountains.
A winding path made of paving stones starts from the Castel and take you right to the heated pool with a lookout tower and lounge, sun deck, massage pool and a dreamy lawn for sunbathing located between vineyards and orchards.
Right at the cliff you will find the the “Sacred Arts Muse Bellé Flora” created to live yoga and meditation moments.
Also, to welcome you and your expectations there will be one of the best chefs of the area, Mr. Egon Heiss. Over the course of his long career as a starred chef, he has been working all over the world and cooked for VIP and billionaires. The cooking critics of the guide Gault Millau described his creations as “Very astutely staged works of art” when he was pursuing the perfect Knödel, a traditional dumpling of the South Tyrol area.
The accommodation Castel Fragsburg consists of
- 2 Double Rooms Deluxe
- 8 Junior Suites
- 8 Suites De Luxe
- 1 Eagle’s nest Suite
- 5 Suites Royale
Castel Fragsburg sway gently above the rocky cliff where it has been anchored for centuries; its cooking philosophy distinguishes itself for being deeply devoted to its native soil and South Tyrolean and Italian traditions.
We can’t avoid to mention the sumptuous “Breakfast Royale” offered by the Castle which has been elected by Vanity Fair as one of the mighty Top Ten in Italy: a combination of an exquisite buffet with exclusively homemade delicacies and a selection à la carte hot dishes, fresh fruit, berries, vegetable, fruit smoothies and an interesting selection of teas.
The Fragsburg Gourmet Arrangement also includes a 5 -course candle- lit dinner in the Fragsburg Orangerie restaurant and the pleasure of sitting on the scenic terrace with a stunning view over the sea of lights over the Merano’s valley and the giant mountains of South Tyrol.
Inside the restaurant “Prezioso”, located in the glass loggia surrounded by
a mantle of roses, ivy and wisteria on the wooden terrace, Egon will invite you to “South Tyrol staged Heiss”: an experience of the senses, which will end in the kitchen together with the Grand Chef himself. You can’t really miss this experience if you choose South Tyrol for your “Once in a life time” event.
