The Kränzel labyrinth

A special kind of garden can be visited in Cermes near Lana and Merano - arts and nature, combined in a unique way.

An extraordinary natural piece of art is found in Cermes, a little village near Lana and Merano. A piece of art that is continually growing and changing and from month to month comes in new shapes and forms. This is the labyrinth of the Kränzel winery, a marvellous manor and medieval complex with huge vineyards and fields on an area of 4.5 hectares.

"The Kränzel labyrinth wants to prove that everybody can live in harmony with nature and contemporaneously show how creative even small enterprises might be. Among the target groups are obviously all nature lovers, those interested in culture and arts, wine enthusiasts, not to forget families and children, looking for an intellectual way of relaxation and inner harmony. If you are interested in spirituality you might want to discover and interpret the garden's astral principles." (Franz Graf Pfeil)

Two hectares of the Kränzel winery are used for the "7 Gardens" - the enchanting Labyrinth Garden, the Garden of Love, the Garden of Ying and Yang, the Garden of Sensuality, the Garden of Confidence, the Theatre and the Fairground. On a regular basis meditation courses are held in this special setting. Furthermore there are a restaurant and a vinotheque.
