The Castel forte – Trotsburg castle is situated above the entrance of Val Gardena on the eastern side above the Isarco village at 627 m. Castel forte – Trotsburg has always had a particular appeal but its real value is hidden inside. A fascinating mix between the romantic gate and the arched windows, gothic military gear and late gothic furniture that go back to the 15th – 16th century and magnificent renaissance style living rooms. Recently in three different rooms of the castle there is the permanent display “Castelli – Costruzioni della storia” (Castles – historical constructions) that gives us an insight into the development of South-Tyrolean castles.
