A long winter comes to an end

Only rarely does the castle experience such winters; for weeks the complex lay under a thick layer of snow of over 150 cm. The access roads could hardly be kept clear and only with difficulty could the most important parts of the castle be reached.

Our snow shoveler Peter Paul did a great job and scooped his way through the masses of snow. Now the sun is doing its job and slowly even the big piles of snow are melting. It won't be long before our tour is completely free again and we can welcome the first guests back at the beginning of May!

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.
