Prösels Castle

The magnificent Prösels Castle is located near Völs am Schlern in the South Tyrolean holiday region Seiser Alm. A guided tour in the castle is a very special adventure for the whole family and can perfectly be accompanied by a hike in front of the impressive mountain scenery of the Dolomites.

For the first time, Prösels Castle was mentioned in a document of 1279. It was built by the lords of Völs, noble servants of the bishops of Brixen. An important member of this family, Leonhard of Völs-Colonna ordered the expansion of the castle complex to a Renaissance castle in 1500.

After the disappearance of this noble family from Völs at the beginning of the 19th century, the castle has had various owners before being purchased by the board of trustees “Schloss Prösels” and elaborately renovated. Still today, the castle is a significant cultural sight of Seiser Alm holiday region.

An insight into the Middle Ages

From May until October, Prösels Castle can be visited with a guided tour every day except on Saturdays. In the months of July and August, there are special guided tours for families with knight Friedrich, giving you exciting insights into the life of knights and maidens. The collection of arms in the Pfeilerstube room is the highlight for all visitors. Here, you can even see the armour of a samurai.

Prösels Castle offers varied cultural pleasures with expositions and concerts. A special event is the Oskar von Wolkenstein Ride: The traditional riding spectacle partially takes places at Prösels Castle.

Hiking pleasures

If you neither want to come by bus nor by car, you can reach Prösels Castle from Völs am Schlern on a wonderful hiking path or by bike.

As well, you can also find “Oachner Höfeweg” path near Prösels Castle: This circular route passes along several old farms and allows you to have breath-taking panoramic views on the Dolomites as well as to enjoy culinary delicacies in traditional taverns.
