Reichenberg & Rotund Castle

Both medieval castles are enthroned high above Taufers im Münstertal. Although they have been unoccupied for a long time and fallen into decay the mysterious ruins of Reichenberg and Rotund still attract adventurers and curious people.

Due to its location on a precipitous hill on about 1,500 meters above sea level Rotund ranks among the highest castles throughout Tyrol. It was built in 900 at the bidding of the bishops of Chur and it probably bears its name because of the prominent round donjon. In the 15th century Rotund Castle was renovated and extended. Today it is in possession of the municipality of Taufers im Münstertal, but there is no real owner.

Reichenberg Castle was the residence of the same bishops and is located on a steep slope, too, but something deeper than Rotund. After repeatedly changing lords and reeves the building has been no longer inhabited since the end of the 17th century. That’s why many parts of the fortification are decaying, only the mighty keep is preserved.

Just as the whole Vinschgau also the environs of Taufers im Münstertal is an ideal terrain for hikers and mountain bikers. Maybe you make a detour to the castle ruins of Rotund and Reichenberg during one or the other tour, in order to admire them at least from the outside.
