Informationen zu Ruin Hauenstein

On 1273 m, just below the mountain Schlern/Sciliar, you will find what is left of a castle, once used by Eckard von Villanders as his residence. The famous Oswald von Wolkenstein, grandson of Eckard von Villanders, was to inherit parts of the castle and in 1427 he went on to be its lonesome owner. Many objects, for example his bronze-sword, were found in this location. Even the remains of some frescos were found in the chapel. The castle was restructured in the 15th and the 16th century. In 1551, Christoph Freiherr von Wolkenstein became the new owner of castle Hauenstein. Today it is owned by the diocese Bozen-Brixen.

The ruins of castle Hauenstein are located in the midst of this dense forest above Seis am Schlern/Siusi allo Sciliar. “Durch Barbarei, Arabia” are the first words of a piece written by the former owner of the castle, the famous medieval singer Oswald von Wolkenstein.
