Informationen zu Velthurns Castle

The castle complex from the 16th century served the prince-bishops of Brixen (Bressanone) as their summer residence until 1803. The castle’s deer garden was famous in its day, and there was also an enormous outdoor aviary and a fish pond. The main attractions today are the precious Renaissance furnishings with wood paneling, inlay work, carved portals, ceramic stoves, frescoes and an archaeological collection. The museum also houses the collection of South Tyrolean artworks from the 15th to 20th cen. which were bought or confiscated between the World Wars by the Italian Ministry of Culture and returned to the Province of South Tyrol in 1990.

The scribe’s building of the castle houses the Feldthurns Museum with its collection of farm and handicraft implements. See the opening hours under ‘Feldthurns Museum’. Now recently opened for visits is also the Copper Age worship area located in the village, with its megalith complex consisting of stone circles, burial mounds, and ellipse-like structures. The “Archeoparc Feldthurns Tanzgasse”, which was opened in autumn 2008, is open free of charge round the clock. Tours are offered once a week. In addition, the local tourist association offers various archeological hikes in the near vicinity.
