When leaving the hotel on this day we also took a few pictures at the entrance.

All in all it was a very new, nice and clean place, and the people there were also very friendly. All that at a very affordable price.
We thoroughly can recommend Hotel Flora in Meran!

After spending the morning in the center of Meran, in the afternoon we visited a very special place:
The botanical gardens at castle Trautmannsdorff.

When we visited there, autumn was at its prime time.
So those many different colours, nice parks and beautifuls trees and flowers gave us a memorable experience.
