The next milestone

For the first time, the 10,000-visitor threshold was exceeded in one season. We were very happy about this together with our guests from Germany!

"We absolutely have to go there," said Kerstin König and Martin Brickwedde when they spotted Heinfels Castle with binoculars from Golzentipp Mountain. The two from North Rhine-Westphalia actually stopped by on their last day of vacation - and thus exceeded the 10,000-visitor threshold this season. As a surprise, Josef Steinringer, chairman of the museum association, and Monika Reindl-Sint, museum director, gave them a small gift and an invitation to a guided tour of the museum.

On 16 November 2015, the concept regarding the future use of Heinfels Castle was presented to the district councils of the Tyrolean Oberland. If everything goes according o plan, the main redevelopment can take place during summer 2016.

The Südtiroler Burgeninstitut (the South Tyrolean Castle Institute) invited Management of the Museumsverein and the Steering Group to visit a number of castles in and around South Tyrol on 14 July 2015.

On 2 June 2015, the members of the ‘New Uses’ and ‘Redevelopment and Maintenance’ groups were met by gorgeous weather as they set out to visit the border fortress of Altfinstermünz in Nauders at the foot of the Finstermünzpass.
