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.

  • It is really picturesque, great place to visit with family and friends. I am so loving every moment

  • With no doubt, this is one of the most beautiful castles in the world. The architecture is amazing. Situated directly by the sea, you almost forget in which century you life...

  • Sold us one ticket to many. Immediately realised our error but she wouldn't take it back. 10€ wasted.

  • Wolderful place! The best is visiting it in the evening at the sunset

  • Beautiful must-see castle close to Trieste. No need to enter the castle, just walk around it. The view from the terrace is incredible. Take a bottle of water with you.
