Haderburg Castle in Salurn
The origins of Salurn Castle or Haderburg Castle, in the southernmost village of South Tyrol, date back to the 11th century: in 1053, Haderburg Castle was mentioned in a travel report for the first time.
After a varied history with several refurbishments, reconstructions and owners, the castle was threatened to decay. In fact, as the castle lost its strategic importance in the 17th century, it was not inhabited anymore.
Legendary Salurn Castle
Only in the 21st century, the owner has renovated the castle with the support of Südtiroler Sparkasse. Since that time, this historical monument is accessible to visitors.
Castle Salurn is not very big, and is perched on a rock, just above Salurn in Southern South Tyrol. Its romantic beauty and impressive position had inspired the Brothers Grimm too, who mentioned it in a legend.
