How “good” Merano is... and even more so during the period of the Christmas markets which, from 24 November last up to 6 February. Don’t miss these gastronomic festivities with a Michelin-starred chef cooking in a chalet right in the centre of town and cookery courses to learn how to prepare the local dumplings as well as the famous Emperor's Omelette.

Produce from Frangsburg Castle’s Soul Garden

Egon Heiss, the Michelin-starred chef of the gourmet restaurant Prezioso in Fragsburg Castle, takes over the Piazza della Rena square which is framed by historic buildings. In a chalet in the Christmas Village he will prepare dishes that sum up the spirit of his South Tyrolean cuisine in an Alpine-Mediterranean version. He uses ingredients that are regional, and often from the Fragsburg Soul Garden, a social project for disadvantaged young people in Labers, a hamlet of Merano, from which his team selects only the freshest vegetables, berries, and herbs.
