The inside story

Miramare Castle, located on a cliff in Grignano near Trieste, is a former Habsburg residence. The extravagant white castle overlooks the Gulf of Trieste and is set on 54 acres of picturesque grounds and botanical gardens.

The castle was built between 1856 and 1860 as a residence for the Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian of Habsburg and his wife Charlotte of Belgium. After the death of Maximilian in 1867 and Charlotte’s subsequent departure for Belgium, the castle continued to serve as an occasional home to the Habsburg family until the 20th century.

The architecture of the castle consists of a mix of Gothic, Medieval and Renaissance elements. Book a tour of the castle and visit Maximilian’s Chambers, the Throne Room and Charlotte’s Music Room. The beautiful rooms still feature the original furnishings, ornaments and objects, dating back to the middle of the 19th century.

Miramare Park and gardens are filled with an impressive array of rare plants, exotic trees, small ponds and magnificent sculptures, many of which were chosen by the Archduke during his travels around the world. Take your time and stroll through the grounds while appreciating the landscape and vistas.

Miramare Castle is located about 5 miles from the city of Trieste and is one of the city’s major attractions. You can reach Miramare Castle by public transport from Trieste Centrale or book a tour with a transfer to make your visit hassle free!
