... walk through 600 years of eventful history
Even today you can still feel the atmosphere of times long gone when you enter the venerable Kaprun Castle. It is as if you are travelling back in time. Surrounded by centuries-old walls, you get an impression of how counts and castellans spent their everyday lives.
A real attraction for visitors today, the castle used to be proud possession and refuge for many noble families for centuries. The castle was first mentioned in documents at the end of the 13th century. However, historians assume that the construction of the castle goes back even further. Kaprun Castle was built by the Upper Bavarian noble family of the Falkensteins in the 12th century.
Until 1975, the castle had seen exciting times before it increasingly fell victim to the natural process of decay. Finally, the Burgverein Kaprun association made sure that mountains of rubble, wild growth and signs of weathering were removed. Since then, the castle has been restored to its former glory and provides a historical setting for modern events. The perfect symbiosis of past and present!
We invite our visitors to take a tour of the castle, and look forward to presenting the Historic Castle and telling the story of the castle at 5 pm. Afterwards, you can explore the castle yourself. There are photo points, a small exhibition, the castle museum and the dungeon. In 2021, the castle association built a staircase to get to the highest point of the keep, from where you can enjoy the panoramic view. The unique view over the Zell Basin is a special highlight of a visit to the castle.
The castle tours take place from 04. July until 25. September 2022, always mondays, wednesdays and sundays from 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm.
