Juval Castle

Reinhold Messner, the famous South Tyrolean extreme mountaineer, book author and museum founder, woke Juval Castle from a deep sleep. He renovated the castle, made it his summer residence and turned part of it into a museum.

Juval Castle is enthroned in the area of the municipality of Kastelbell-Tschars above the narrow Schnals valley gorge near Naturns. It was first mentioned in a document in 1278 and in the 16th century it was converted from a medieval fortification into a Renaissance castle. After the Second World War, the castle in Vinschgau was left to its own devices and began to fall into disrepair.

Messner Mountain Museum Juval

In 1983, Reinhold Messner purchased Juval Castle and combined the medieval walls with modern architecture and influences from distant countries. On the one hand, the castle became a private residence and, on the other, one of several South Tyrolean locations for the Messner Mountain Museum project.

The museum is dedicated to the myth of the mountain. Visitors to the MMM Juval can see, among other things, the Tibetika collection, the adventure library, the collection of masks from 5 continents and the picture gallery on the sacred mountains of the world. The Renaissance frescoes are also worth seeing. On the castle hill there is also a small mountain animal park, the Schlosswirt inn with farm products, the Unterortl winery with excellent wines and, at the foot of the hill, the Vinschgau farm shop.
