Specialty Museum
Burg Freundsberg is a castle in Tyrol, Austria, that was constructed in the year of 1150 by the lords of Freundsberg. Burg Freundsberg is 675m above sea level. Originally the castle consisted out of a single keep, which is still intact up to this date. The chapel next to it was built afterwards in the year 1117. In 1467 the castle was sold to Archduke Sigismund of Austria, who rebuilt the castle and called it Sigismundruh for the duration of his reign.From 1634–37 on, the castle was retrofitted as a "castle church" or Schlosskirche. (Not to be confused with the All Saints' Church, Wittenberg, which is also referred to as a Schlosskirche.) After passing to several other owners from 1812 on, Castle Freundsberg became a property of the municipality of Schwaz. They restored the castle from 1966 onwards.Since 1948 is the castle a museum where the history of the city Schwaz and the silver mining industry in this region is documented.

  • Burg Freundsberg is one of the central attractions of the region. On a Rocky Hill, it is accessible by car. Who loves old historic masonry, which is here in the right place. Young ghosts have taken over the dining area, here a place for special occasions has established itself. Festivals, seminars and celebrations of all kinds find a romantic and well constructed frame. A small museum is housed in the tower that shows objects from the scarce time and a much-noticed toilet self-supporting jutting into hudsonsoft giddier height from the tower. Who makes in Schwaz station, should plan a visit.

  • The Burg Freundsberg can be reached after a short walk from Schwaz out. You will be rewarded not only with a beautiful view of Schwaz but in the restaurant with delicious home-made specialities. The terrace of the Buschenschenke is sunlit all year round. We're always happy.
