South Tyrolean Museum of Culture and Provincial History
The castle was constructed in different building phases and has thus acquired its current appearance over the course of nine centuries.
The first phase of the building complex took place in the 11th century, whilst the South Palace was reconstructed in the 12th century with an additional storey, and further extensions in the 13th century. Some of the most decisive alterations were carried out in the 19th and 20th centuries. One highlight of your visit will be the Romanesque portals which were carved by stonemasons from Lombardy.
You can also visit the medieval double chapel, the magnificent Knights’ Hall which was used for celebrations and symbolic occasions, the dungeon in the Keep, and the panelled Refectory. Countless exhibits provide insight into the life and the cultural and regional history of Tyrol from earliest times to the present.
