CASTEL FRAGSBURG, Merano, Dolomites

THE PAST:

Castel Fragsburg was originally a nobleman’s hunting lodge. Perched high above the valley of Merano on the sun-drenched southern slopes of the Dolomites, with spectacular, sweeping views, it was built in 1620 for the Earl of Mämmingen.

THE PRESENT:

Owned by the Ortner family since 1955, Castel Fragsburg today takes pride in being the smallest luxury hotel in the Dolomites. Guests can expect to be spoiled: beginning with a welcome cocktail and a small greeting from the hotel patisserie on arrival, and continuing with pool service and towels, international newspapers, as well as a nightly turn-down – and fresh spring water drawn from the Castel’s own private, 400m-deep well.

THE PLACE FOR YOU?

Come to Castel Fragsburg if you enjoy fine food and fresh mountain air - and want to enjoy both in a unique and luxuriously appointed setting.

THE PROPERTY IN DETAIL:

RELAXING
The chill-out lounge is most inviting.

EATING & DRINKING
Guests can eat indoors or out, with a choice of four venues and three menu options - the hotel's main restaurant, the cosy Tyrolean stube, and the gourmet restaurant. Fragsburg’s Michelin-star Chef Luis Haller and his talented young team are widely recognised to be at the top of their game. An unrivalled choice of local, seasonal and mostly organic produce – some of it from the herb and kitchen gardens he has established at the hotel - plays a major part in the originality of Chef Haller’s menus. His style is individual, contemporary and eclectic; his presentation, stunning in its simplicity with a fine sense for shape and detail, as evidenced by one of his signature dishes - Goose Liver with Semi-Bitter Chocolate and Pear Jelly.
The hotel wine list is drawn from 170 bins, with the emphasis on local areas, but also encompassing other Italian regions and international wines.
