Freundsberg Castle

Castel Freundsberg, a popular event location, also houses the Schwaz Municipal Museum.

In the south of Schwaz, Freundsberg Castle stands on a steep hill. The castle complex dates back to 1150 AD and used to be the main seat of the Knights of Freundsberg. First there was only a residential tower, in which today parts of the original frescoes can be admired, but when Archduke Sigismund purchased the castle and court in the 15th century, he had it rebuilt as a hunting castle.

The beautiful castle church of the late Renaissance period was added in 1634-1637. From 1812, Schwaz has been in possession of the building in which in 1948 the Municipal Museum in the donjon was inaugurated. It provides an interesting insight into the cultural and ecological development of the Silver Town and the history of mining in Schwaz. On the upper floor there's the old tower apartement which takes you on a journey back in the time of Sigismund of Austria.

The castle also houses a tavern that is ideal for celebrations in a knightly ambience. Treat your palate with spareribs and roasted knuckle of pork, or simply enjoy your day with a glass of wine, a coffee or home-made cake. From the terrace you can enjoy a breathtaking view on the town.
