About Us

Nestled on a sun-drenched mountainside high above Merano is South Tyrol’s smallest five-star hotel. Crisp alpine air flows down from above, mingling with the glorious Mediterranean sunshine: This historic hunting lodge combines two apparently incompatible worlds into an art of fine living.

Welcome to the Fragsburg

Michelin starred gourmet cuisine is just as much a part of life here as a simple, honest, homemade pasta dish. Step through the gateway and you leave everyday life behind to rediscover what it means to breathe. Lose yourself in the stunning mountain panorama to a glass of wine on the terrace. Or tune in to the sounds of nature as you recline on a canopy bed in the enchanted castle gardens. At the Fragsburg you collect moments of beauty rather than business cards. It is a place to enjoy life in its purest form. A place so unique it could be nowhere but here.

Some people call us a boutique hotel, others call us a luxury hotel, and then there are those who call us a hideaway. We see ourselves as a place of refuge. A place in which we artfully combine simple Alpine comfort with sensuous Mediterranean flair. A historic hotel that not only has its own sense of style, but also its own philosophy – that of fine living. This philosophy inspires people to take a closer look at things that seem familiar and to discover something new in them. Our 1st alchemistic Healing Spa Castellum Natura offers rejuvenating treatments and specially created, freshly prepared care products that are based on ancient knowledge of South Tyrolean herbs and natural ingredients, handed down through the generations. The same philosophy is expressed in our 20 suites , each of which features a unique design, and in the steadfast character of our exquisite gourmet cuisine , which is testament both to Merano’s bountiful natural surroundings and the personalities of our virtuoso chef Egon Heiss.

The Fragsburg pays homage to life and its many joys. We aim to inspire you to lighten up and join us in experiencing the fine art of unadulterated living. Take a hike in the magnificent Dolomites, stroll the streets of Merano just 15 minutes away or spend the afternoon lounging in the heated outdoor pool within the enchanted castle gardens. Time to live by your own rhythm.

Best of the Best

Castel Fragsburg is a place of power for gourmets, romantics, and wellness lovers. Here you find what all the money in the world cannot buy – soulful luxury that’s creative, heartfelt, and singular. Every suite is beautifully curated and unique. Experience Michelin-starred cuisine, a 50,000 m² / 500.000 ft² fairy park with heated pool and sundeck in the middle of the vineyards, and breathtaking mountains, as well as Healing Spa Castellum Natura, where all care elixirs are freshly prepared. From the moment you step through the portal of the historic 17th-century hunting manor, you bring the outside world to a pause.

Sustainability

We at Castel Fragsburg are especially proud of our own Fragsburg Soul Garden. The vegetables, herbs and fruits for our restaurants are harvested by chef Egon Heiss and his cooks directly from the earth of this garden. Led by a women’s managed refugee initiative, on a 2000 square meter large field grow, without the use of any chemicals, exclusively picked ingredients.

For our chef Egon Heiss it is extremely important to use as many products from small local producers as possible. This gives him not only the best products available but also the human contact to his producers which allows him a quality management otherwise not possible.

The fertile plants and flowers are the source of natural power from which we draw inspiration and specially chosen essences for our inimitable 1st Alchemistic Healing Spa Castellum Natura.

Many years ago the owner Mr. Ortner has decided to change the oil based heating system of the hotel to a more sustainable energy and has installed a pellets heating solution and a solar system for all the hotel, staff and private housing as well.

All our water comes from our private fountains and it has been energized with the GRANDER water system. During the renovation in 2001 where we have expanded a part of the hotel all the construction has been made within the guidelines of the historic preservation to contain the historic values of our hunting manor.

A unique exceptional hotel and resort

By: Ron S.


Reviewed on: 11 Oct 2019

Castel Fragsburg is a unique, exceptional property in the Dolomites overlooking Merano. The hotel was originally a hunting lodge and is beautifully furnished with antiques and period pieces. The resort's grounds include a walking path among lovely gardens. We enjoyed the spa and our sound meditation experience. The chef prepared several courses for dinner every evening that were attractive and delicious. Our spacious suite was attractively furnished and our deck had views of the valley. All of the staff provided excellent service. We highly recommend this property.
