Grimmenstein castle



The museum-castle Grimmenstein is the most famous sight of the village of the same name. The building consists of a so-called high castle on the rock and a hillside castle below. The name of the castle dates back to the 12th century, but its foundations and parts of the masonry are much older. Some sources point to a much older history of the castle, for example, part of the preserved keep is said to date back to a Roman watchtower around 2,000 years old. After years of decay, it has been undergoing extensive renovation by the Grimmenstein family since 2014.

The closest public parking is the Asfinag parking lot in the valley, from which a slow train departs every hour during opening hours. To linger until the next guided tour of the castle, you can enjoy the magnificent panorama of the Buckligen Welt from the terrace and fortify yourself with snacks, homemade pastries and drinks.

The destination is also popular as a location for children's birthday parties and private celebrations. The castle is heated and can be used for events all year round.
