The castle of Oswald von Wolkenstein
When travelling towards Fiè or Castelrotto you will definitely see it: Shortly before Fiè, high above the road on your right, towers mighty Presule Castle!
First written documents date back to the year 1279, mentioning a so-called “castrum presile”. In 1500 Leonhard von Völs rennovated the fascinating building, adding some renaissance-style features. Those visiting the castle should cast a glance at the famous collection of arms and numerous other items such as paintings or furniture mainly originating in the 19th century.
The castle, moreover, is a popular venue for all kinds of events, raning from concerts and guided visits to theatres performances, exhibitions and much more. It even hosts parts of the annual Oswald von Wolkenstein Ride, which definitely forms every year’s highlight!
The castle opens its doors on a daily basis, except Saturdays; guided visits only! Further information at: +39 0471 601062
