Castel Fragsburg

Meran, Trentino-Südtirol

Hideaway – SOUL LUXURY FOR GOURMETS, ROMANTICS & WELLNESS LOVERS

High above the imperial spa town of Merano – where the sun shines the longest and the untamed romanticism of the majestic South Tyrolean mountainous world steps into the spotlight – Castel Fragsburg has been sitting enthroned for nearly 400 years, rooted in rock and soil. And yet the former hunting castle from the 17th century with in total 50,000 sqm seems to sway above the venerable tree tops of the Fragsburg’s rocky cliffs.
With the purchase of the Castel Fragsburg Paternum, the castle on the mighty clifftop from the 14th century, the Ortner family has reunited the two buildings that originally belonged together.

The castle nowadays is used as an eventlocation for weddings and celebrations.

Culinary – THE PERFECTION OF SIMPLICITY

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.

One sumptuous option is the famous Breakfast Royale offered by the Fragsburg, which was elected by the Vanity Fair magazine as one of the mighty Top Ten in Italy.The Fragsburg Gourmet Arrangement includes a 5-course candlelit dinner (also available in vegan version) in the Fragsburg Orangerie restaurant and the delight of sitting on the scenic terrace with a cinematographic view over the sea of lights in the valley and the giant mountains of South Tyrol.

HEALTHY, VITALISING AND VEGAN MEALS

We believe delicious and creative cooking is not enough. We want to create dishes that indulge all the senses and appeal to guests’ physical, mental and spiritual well-being and as a matter of course includes also vegan and vegetarian dishes.
May we offer you a broccoli cream wih fine herbs sauce or couscous with mediterranean vegetables and raisins? Some sweet dessert should not be missing and so we are glad to recommend a strawberry sorbet, berries and rose fragrance.

Healing Spa – INSPIRED BY THE ANCIENT KNOWLEDGE OF HERBAL MEDICINE

In the 1st Alchemistic Healing Spa Castellum Natura, the only one of its kind in the world, the modern alchemist Renate De Mario Gamper, who comes from a South Tyrolean clan of women attuned to nature, personally prepares all care and grooming elixirs from hand selected flowers and herbs.
The teacher of healing herbs, incense therapist and nutrition consultant unites the knowledge of cures of her forbears and of the medieval polymath Hildegard von Bingen with the latest insights of science and energy medicine and her unbridled love and reverence for the earth and its gifts.

A place of well-being – A PLACE THAT ENCHANTS AND INSPIRES PEOPLE

Castel Fragsburg is nestled in enchanted castle grounds which stretch out from the boutique retreat for more than 50,000 m², bordering with the highest waterfall in South Tyrol.

A winding path made of paving stones starts from the Fragsburg, goes by a hand carved four-poster bed placed under a chestnut, across rose arches, and takes you right to a 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 Fragsburg Sanctuarium, a treehouse for yoga and personalized treatments. Fitness fans can use the Garden Gym, located in a cosy arbour in the huge park.

Suites – AT EYE LEVEL WITH BIRDS AND BUTTERFLIES

The 20 suites of the castle hotel were all carefully furnished with a distinctive feeling for colours, and feature noble materials and an extravagant style, are flooded with light and have one, sometimes even two balconies or a roof terrace.

Every room – be it a Double Room Deluxe, a Junior Suite, a Suite Deluxe, or a Suite Royale‚ is a curated unique piece which will enchant guests thanks to its graceful mix of Alpine-Mediterranean elegance and is furnished with luxurious details.

Sustainability – VALUING THE ESSENTIAL

Castel Fragsburg is especially proud of its own Fragsburg Soul Garden. The vegetables, herbs and fruits for the gourmet restaurant Prezioso and the Orangerie restaurant are harvested by chef Egon Heiss and his cooks directly from the earth of this garden. On a 2000 square meter large field grow, without the use of any chemicals, exclusively picked ingredients for the hotel and restaurant guests.
For more diversity and authenticity in our gourmet cuisine, we also work with producers
and farmers from the local area.

The property is supported by a sustainable philosophy. To safeguard this philosophy, the historical walls that give this property its original charm and tell tales of times in the distant past are preserved.

Modern technologies also found their way in, enabling to take the next steps towards sustainability. Heat and cosiness, for example, are now guaranteed by large solar panels and a wood pellet heating system, which is fuelled entirely by local resources.

The beauty of nature is not just revealed in the garden but is reflected in the beautiful things inside the building, as the flowers that adorn our halls come from the Fragsburg Soul Garden and the surrounding meadows. Equally, the herbs picked in the garden are an important component in our tinctures and ointments in the Healing Spa. Plastic packaging is just as out of place here as the in in-room amenities such as spa bags and toiletries which are normally found in spa hotel bathrooms.
