Miramare Castle - Review

The Castle of Miramare and its Park were built by Ferdinand Maximilian of Hapsburg who decided to have a residence befitting his rank built on the outskirts of Trieste, facing the sea and surrounded by a lush garden. The castle is breathtaking to say the least and the surrounding gardens add to the unadulterated beauty. The remarkable architecture of the Castle is the amalgamation of Gothic, medieval and Renaissance styles and reflects the eclectic taste of the Archduke. Franz Hoffman was entrusted with the decoration of the house and did a brilliant job with the furnishings and the styling of the mansion. The view on top of the castle is absolutely spell binding. All in all, the castle and the grounds are immaculately preserved and offer a peak into royal homes of the past.

The museum inside the castle holds many of the original furnishings, ornaments and objects that date back to the mid 19th Century and showcases the well preserved living quarters of the family. There is an information room that depicts the history of the castle and the park's construction. All the rooms still feature the original furnishings, ornaments, furniture and objects dating back to the middle of the 19th century. Particularly noteworthy are the music room and a series of paintings by Cesare dell'Acqua depicting the history of Miramare. Lastly, visitors can also see the throne room, which has gone through a recent refurbishment.

Miramare Castle, Trieste Reviews

  • I like it so much because there were audio guides that you can take and you were told everything about the castle. The rooms were perfectly conserved and the paintings too. I liked so much the library and I recommend it, but the part that I preferred was the biggest garden that I have ever seen in Italy. It was like a park and you can have walks, go circling or simply look at the see that is the perfect frame of the complex. There is also a bar and an ice-cream shop. If you go to Trieste you will have to visit the castle and his gardens for sure. It will be an incredible experience.

  • A very beautiful castle to visit. The grounds outside the castle was well maintained and also beautiful and peaceful to walk around. They had a nice cafe on the grounds to buy food or have a coffee break. It was very easy and cheap to take a bus from Trieste to the castle and back if one did not have a car.

  • A truly beautiful and tranquil place. The views over the Gulf of Trieste are amazing and the water clarity is incredible. After passing through the barrier at the entrance there are plenty of parking spaces along the right-hand side of the road. The price of the parking is very reasonable, just make sure you leave at least 30 minutes before the closing time. There is always a bit of a traffic jam at the exit. When you are there, don’t be totally distracted by the Castle itself as the nearby forest also contains some wonderful sights and old buildings. It was 30+ degrees when we were there and it wasn’t a problem. There is plenty of shade from the trees and being so close to the sea there was always going to be a bit of wind. There are free public toilets beside the port to the right of the castle, after you go down the stairs. As they are contained within the original structure of the building you can get a real feel for the attention to detail placed into each aspect of the construction of the castle.

  • Well hidden scenic beauty with tons to explore on the grounds full of rich history linked into one of the most powerful empires in recent history. I would suggest this on any sunny day as the views here are stunning looking back into Trieste or down the coast. Lots of tours or people enjoying the day with a convenient gelato stand placed on the grounds.

  • Very nice place to spend half a day. It is surrounded by large greenery and sea which makes it a nice place to walk around. Great place for kids who would enjoy this large garden and open space. They have a cafeteria and a museum. Easy connection to city center by bus.
