This ministerial fortress was built in the 12th cen. and expanded in the 14th and 15th cen. It was once owned by the brother of the famous medieval troubadour, Oswald von Wolkenstein and has belonged to the South Tyrol Castle Institute since 1967. Its current appearance is the result of renovations during the Renaissance which combined its fortification characteristics with those of a residential castle. This idyllic and unadulterated castle symbolizes the conflict between protection through defensive technology and personable livability.
