Only baroque castle in South-Tyrol, Castel Wolfsthurn represents a precious and elaborate inventory that gives an insight into the life style of the aristocrats of that time.
“The most beautiful castle of the Tyrol region” – this is how the historian Joh. Nep. Tinkhauser defined the Wolfsthurn – Tordilupo castle. This marvellous castle sits on a soft hill. At the centre of the courtyard a spray fountain stands out. The castle’s facades present an exemplary 365 glass windows. The inside is spacious. The ceilings of the internal ball rooms on the second floor are ornate with sparkly crystal chandeliers. The walls of the two hunting rooms are covered with richly decorated tapestry, illustrating the hunting expeditions held by the aristocrats. The antique furbishing, paintings and heavy curtains are all original pieces of the castle and take you back in time to the 18th and 19th centuries. The German name of the castle, Wolfthurn, comes from the old owner Rudolfus Lupus to whom the castle was given in 1242 by the Counts of Tyrol as a fief – Wolf means “wolf” in German. The origins of the castle are unknown. In 1727 the castle was bought by the Sternbach of Brunico aristocratic family who are still the owners today. Franz Andreas von Sternbach, between 1727 and 1741, transformed the castle in the only baroque castle of the entire Tyrol region.
