Naudersberg Castle

The former court castle is enthroned on a hill in the border triangle Italy - Austria - Switzerland.

A bit south of Nauders, in the Tiroler Oberland area, Naudersberg Castle rises on a rolling hill. Constructing started already in the 12th century, 1325 the castle was first mentioned in a document. The impressive keep, the palas in the south-east, the castle gate and the rectangular layout date back to this time. In the course of centuries Naudersberg Castle was steadily extended and rebuilt, but has preserved its original medieval state of construction until today.

Naudersberg Castle always was in possession of state authorities until the 20th century. From 1330 it was used as territorial court for the area between Landeck and the Passo Resia mountain pass and kept the performance until 1919. The judge at Naudersberg Castle had to be a Tyrolese and had to know the Rhaeto-Romance language until the 17th century, because around Nauders many Rhaetian lived.

In 1980 Naudersberg Castle changed hands to the Köllemann family and was restored. Today the impressive building houses two holiday apartments and a restaurant, which is located in the ancient stables, as well as the castle museum which can be admired within a guided tour. The lives of the prisoners and judges at Naudersberg Castle is shown in an impressive way: torture chambers, prison cells, original instruments of torture, the magic of the wizard Florian Scheibenstock, the smoke room and the Gothic parlours are shown. In the attic rural and artisan exhibits are shown. Thanks to its location along the road to the Passo Resia Naudersberg Castle is easily accessible. A true time journey awaits you!
