A night at Heinfels Castle

Discover the secrets of the "Queen of the Puster Valley" in the evening hours.

Every Friday evening during the summer season up to and including 3. 9. the castle opens its doors until 10 p.m. and shows a completely different, unknown side. The guided tours through the dark, mysterious medieval complex are a highlight, but also the panoramic tour allows very special insights and views.

Note: On Friday, 13. 8., the evening opening hours will change due to the simultaneous event "Trojer hört Mitterer".

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.
