Castles & Culture
Berg | Eppan
Built in the 13th century, Freudenstein Castle has served as a holiday resort for numerous noble families. Several generations have already fallen in love with the magnificent panoramic view of Bozen, the Rosengarten and Schlern. The complex was built as two small castles, but was later united into one large castle in the 16th century in the possession of the Fuchs von Fuchsberg family. Then, in 1519, the private St. Andrew's Chapel was also built. Inside there are some treasures: late Gothic flat carvings in the chapel room, wall paintings in the residential wing, a parlour panel with inlays in the north wing and red chalk and charcoal inscriptions in the Great Hall.
Today, Freudenstein Castle shines with artistic elegance and everlasting beauty. The castle has housed a hotel, which offers a mysterious aura of the historic aristocratic residence with exceptional living comfort. In addition, Freudenstein Castle is home to a golf academy and a practice course, and in the inner courtyard you have the opportunity to be pampered like queens and kings in the Danilo d`Ambra Restaurant.
