  • Two visits within three months, and already I would love to go again! After 500 years see substantially intact environments is possible in a few castles. Unfortunately the furnishings have gone missing during the Napoleonic period, however do not feel their lack: Werner, with a light show and fluently, to appreciate every detail without ever become tedious. A pleasant time to visit that can not miss in a holiday in the Eisack Valley. Easily accessible by car or bus from Brixen. Poorly suited to children under 6 years.

  • It is not just a castle, but the fortified residence built on the previous settlement by Cardinal Cristoforo Madruzzo, Bishop of Trento and Bressanone in 1578 by giving him a Renaissance connotation. In 1580 he took the property the grandson, Johann Thomas von Spaur, as the emblem on the front door, and basically served as the summer residence of the Prince-Bishops of Brixen until 1803, with the arrival of Napoleon. After the restoration, he was transferred to the Habsburg Imperial property, then passed into private hands, was later donated to the city Bolzano by the Prince Johannes II von und zu Liechtenstein ruler. Finally in 1978 became property of the province Autonomy. It is possible to have a guided tour.
