If you ever watched any of the Sissi Tele movies (Empress Elizabeth of Austria ) then you must wander into this beautiful park to admire her statue. Her life story is fascinating and you can see why this lovely town of Merano was one of her favourites,

It's a statue in a park. It doesn't get much easier than that. The park is clean, but if you don't like dogs then you should avoid it.

Since I was a little girl, I was always fascinated by this statue. And I remember the first time, my mom took me to see it.

This statue recalls the times when Merano was Austrian, And Sissy loved this city perhaps because it was the closest to her beloved bavarian countryside. Today, sometimes it is beheaded every time merano's italian descendents have some issues with merano's austrian and german speaking descendents. But always some pitiful soul glues the head back!

As a statue this one is nothing special but I was on the "Sissi trail". I've been a big fan ever since watching the old films most years of my childhood at Christmas time. So, this area is great - several statues and a lot of history at Trautmannsdorf Castle and here a cafe, a promenade, and icecream and another... More

This statue is a statue in my view and this particular one is nothing special. This lady did lead the tourist drive in the area so maybe she is a bit more special than most in these parts.

It's fine. It isn't Michelangelo's David. But look for it as you wander around the trails near the river and take 5 minutes to walk over and check it out.

This part of Italy was part of Austria before 1918 and there are constant reminders of this fact, from the last names of the locals which are as likely to be German as Italian; to the food served; and to the persons venerated, like Princess Elizabeth also know as Sissi, who was much beloved by the commoners.
