Informationen zu Prince's Castle

Erected by Archduke Sigismund of Austria around 1470 at the foot of Küchelberg Mountain as the state residence, this castle served the princes of Tyrol as the seat of their government. It was also occasionally inhabited by Emperor Maximilian and by the family of Emperor Ferdinand I. The castle is thus the ideal place to study the way of life in the late Medieval period. A bygone era is brought back to life with furniture from everyday life, kitchen implements, ceramic stoves, frescoes, portraits, musical instruments, and weapons.
