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

From May 2018 to the end of October 2019, more than 2800 visitors gained insights into one of the most exciting construction sites in the region.

It was a special day for the "Queen of the Puster Valley": On the 12th of July the guardian angel bell was cast in the bell foundry Grassmayr in Innsbruck. This is a continuation of the old tradition of bells in the castle.

During the restoration work, a special red chalk drawing from the early 16th century was uncovered. But this is not the only discovery!

Heinfels Castle’s main redevelopment should be complete and open once again to the general public within five years. An ambitious goal if you were to take a peek inside the imposing castle, as the last centuries haven’t been kind to the halls and chambers, leaving them to dilapidate.

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.
