Burg Heinfels is a castle in Heinfels, Tyrol, Austria. It stands in the Puster Valley, near the entrance to the Villgraten Valley. Although the town was first settled by Huns around 500AD, a castle was not mentioned until 1243. It belonged to the County of Gorz, and was expanded on the west side in 1500. In 1526, it was besieged by Michael Gaismair and 2,000 soldiers seeking to overthrow Catholic rule in the area. Today it is privately owned.Plan your visit to Burg Heinfels and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Sillian route maker site.
Burg Heinfels reviews
Beautiful wooden bridge.
We made the visit in German, booking by email from the site with help with translation by two 'in training' guides. The castle is currently a construction site and will become a resort, gasthaus and museum. You will then visit a place where workers work during the week. There are passages on wooden planks, bumpy ground... so you need sports shoes and you don't have to suffer from vertigo. Outside there will be the cable car, for access to disabled people, inside an elevator. The works are partly financed by EU partnerships Italy-Austria and the Italian Loacker, which within minutes has its own refreshment and sale point We left an offer (free) for the 2-hour visit
