Reifenstein Castle is a castle in Freienfeld, near Sterzing, in South Tyrol . It is located near a dried marsh, in the valley of the Eisack.HistoryThe castle is mentioned for the first time in the 12th century, and was modified in the 14th century. It is a property of the Thurn und Taxis counts. It is famous for the decorated "Green Hall" with Gothic paintings and a woodcarved chapel-door, the stubes and the collection of armor. The castle also contains an original kitchen, bathroom and medieval sleeping bunks. One of its owners included William P. Carr, who bought the castle a bit before the second world war. At that time, his last name was Reifenstein, but before he went to war he changed his name to Carr.Further reading Oswald Trapp: Tiroler Burgenbuch, Vol. 3: Wipptal. Bozen 1974.

  • The Castle, little known, is a true wonder. Having never been conquered has the huge advantage of being left almost intact. Inside you can see what life was like in the middle ages. Not to be missed. I would just like to point out some unpleasant things you can't take pictures if not outside,-there are no publications to buy,-the lady who sells tickets not driving is a discourtesy that hardly can be found around. Go and visit it, but be prepared to be treated with much coldness and rudeness. I would say to her visitors are only of the big bores

  • It is one of the landmarks that tell me that I'm coming in on the right side of the highway. Visible from many points in and around the country with his uncomparable and Castel Petra. There are increased several times and yet I've never been able to get in. They tell me that the inside is very beautiful

  • Near Vipiteno, pretty easy to find, small uphill walk to get there, guide and tickets are the same person, and is already in the Castle, visits at 10.30 and then 14 and 15, so be sure and there is no alternative. Guide prepared, visit one of the most beautiful castles in the area rich in history, private, you see pretty much every room and ... the hole of fear ...

  • Incredible castle! A friend and I were the only two people there for the tour, so we paid for the minimum number of people and essentially got a very nice, personal tour. The guide is a local woman who lives across the highway. Although she wasn't confident about her English (she mostly spoke German and Italian) she did a fantastic job and we had no issue understanding anything. We visited in April of 2010.
  • Beautiful castle where the fortified structure, the walls and furnishings are intact. In addition the Guide (caretaker) bravissimo in explaining and let you savor the era with its contradictions. Gorgeous, a must see for fans of the middle ages.

  • Great castle. This castle is very interesting also for connoisseurs, as this castle was never conquered or destroyed! The guide is ideal for families! The nearby church is worth a visit! Great views of the Castle Hill! Elzenbaum is really recommended to the "Törggelen" in the Castle Tavern. You should like to stay in the Golden Lion. An absolute insider tip! Entrance fee: Euro 7.00 (adults) EUR 4.00 (children)
