Castle Welsperg

Castle Welsperg seems to watch over the village of Welsberg in Pustertal and is an imposing castle complex with roots in the 12th century.

North-east of Welsberg, at the mouth of the Gsies valley, the well-preserved Castle Welsperg rises on a rock terrace and the Thurn ruins are enthroned on the wooded hill opposite. Castle Welsperg is also interesting because of the rather rare form of the castle complex, which is called a core castle in castle studies.

Medieval walls

Around 900 years ago, the Schwikher brothers and Otto von Welsperg built the keep: The oldest part of the castle served as a lookout point and offered protection from enemies. Soon afterwards, the complex was extended to include the palace with the farm buildings and a small Romanesque chapel. Further extensions and alterations followed in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Today, the castle can be visited in summer and exhibitions and concerts are held there. A circular hike starting from the centre of the village of Welsberg is recommended, which leads past both Castle Welsperg and the Thurn ruins.
