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.

  • I have seen the Church of Schwat out, walked up and was excited; Church and Tower (3.50 EUR entry) really worth seeing and the explanations of the very friendly owner of the Castle Tavern still positively complete the overall picture; also great views

  • A bit out of the city and on top of the hill, you will find this mighty castle. It used to be the residence of the Archduke Sigismund and now a days it's a museum of the silver mining in Schwaz .  more »
  • Featured castle with keep and in the Museum of local history. Be sure to book tour. The background information is worth it. Still, a Café with great views in Castle Café.
