Summer at Heinfels Castle
Concerts in historical scenery

Little concerts by outstanding ensembles in a historical setting - this is the motto of the performances during the Summer concerts at Heinfels Castle. The inner courtyard and the "Langer Saal" serve as venues for a special musical treat in the largest castle complex in the Puster Valley.

Limited places, therefore we are looking forward to a lively interest and quick registration!

An event by the Musikkapelle Heinfels

It's not as if the six guys from the Rupertiwinkel, the Pinzgau and the Inntal had only recently crossed paths, no quite the opposite: they have known each other for quite a few years, in 2016 the formation "Kapelle So&So" was founded. After the first concerts, it quickly becomes clear that stylistically there are few limits for the six musicians.
Whether folk music, classical music or reggae, simply everything is played that is fun. Almost all pieces and songs are original compositions, which makes the unmistakable sound of the band.

Hansi Auer - ziach | Michi Graf - guitar | Oschi Öttl - flugelhorn | Wasti Höglauer - flugelhorn | Manu Haitzmann - bass trumpet | Stefan Huber - tuba

Tickets are available at

- all members of the Musikkapelle Heinfels - Raiffeisenbank Sillian

The 25th edition of the International Choir Festival brings some choirs for the first time to Heinfels Castle! On Saturday, 18. 6., choirs from Italy will give a guest performance in the impressive historical scenery, starting at 1 pm. Free entry, welcome!

Recently, a Viscope telescope has been added to our castle tour! With a look through the telescope you get the most important info about the panoramic points like mountain peaks or places in the region.

We are really looking forward to the regular start of the new season on May 1st! In addition to our guided time travel through the historical castle, you can also explore the outdoor areas, the platforms and the keep on your own during the panoramic tour. In summer, many events invite you to visit the castle!

The museum opened as early as May, but it was not until July that the travel restrictions fell. By the end of the season on 7 November, 12,372 visitors had been counted at Heinfels Castle.

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!


After more than 200 years, a bell rings again at Heinfels Castle. Bishop Hermann Glettler consecrated the new guardian angel bell on May 9.

New at the beginning of the 2021 season: The outdoor areas of Heinfels Castle can be explored on your own as part of the panoramic tour during opening hours! As soon as conditions permit, our guided tours of the extensive castle grounds will also take place.

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 were barely kept clear and only with difficulty could the most important parts of the castle be reached.

On 15 July 2020 we opened Heinfels Castle. In this short and very challenging season, we were nevertheless able to welcome 5508 visitors in 659 guided tours until October 26 due to the worldwide pandemic with many travel restrictions!

On Wednesday, July 15, we started the first summer season with the museum, shop and castle tavern. The preparations for this were already in full swing for some time.

The current situation also has Heinfels Castle firmly under control. Construction work has resumed after the obligatory break and we are continuing to work flat out to complete the museum.

Three years ago the elaborate work on the largest profane restoration project in Tyrol began. All the roofs of the castle, with the exception of the tower from 1992, have now been newly roofed and the access paths inside the complex have already been paved. The opening of the museum is planned for early summer 2020
