Landeck Castle, the emblem of the city of Landeck, is located on a steep rock spur in the Upper Inntal valley.
In the south of the city of Landeck in the Upper Inntal valley, at the intersection of the roads leading to the Arlberg, Fernpass and Passo Resia alpine passes, there is Landeck Castle. The castle has been built in 1290 AD by the Counts of Tyrol as site of the court and administration. The name “Landecke”, however, was first mentioned in a feud certificate of the Bishop of Bressanone in 1251. From the 14th century onward the name was also used for the castle and the entire region from the Stanzertal valley to Fliess and Zams.
Until 1797 the castle has been site of the court and administration. Afterwards is was hospital, casern and accomodation for workers. However, nowadays in Landeck Castle there is the Regional Museum Landeck featuring a permanent exhibition, illustrating the history of the Tiroler Oberland area, and two art galleries. Attention was given also to the young visitors by offering creative afternoons for kids from 6 to 10 years and a special educational programme for school classes and youth groups.
Landeck Castle is a popular event location - seminars and tastings take place, and also for civil ceremonies it is a popular venue. Those who love music can look forward to the concerts staged in the Gothic castle hall, and the “Oberländer Advent” at Christmas time transforms the castle into a fairytale place to stay at.
