Erlebnis Kränzelhof, a maze of nature and art

The story of the Garden-Maze in the Kränzel estate – in Cermes, Bolzano – started in the beginning of the year 2000, when viticulturist and winemaker Franz Graf Pfeil decided to follow his dream to create A happy place for my family and me but also for those who like wondering and exploring themselves and of course nature and art.

That is how the Erlebnis Kränzelhof came to life, offering anyone a real experience – “Erlebnis” – in direct contact with the nature and art inside the beautiful Kränzel estate.

Larches, hornbeams, mulberries, dogwoods, alders and yews embody a vision by Gernot Candolini, the labyrinth architect who also designed and created the maze for the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna and the one in Münsterschwarzach, Germany.

Now, let’s lose ourselves in beauty.
