Flavon Castle

Above Aslago and the valley basin of Bolzano rises Flavon Castle which houses a well-known restaurant

Flavon Castle - also known as Haselburg, or Küepach Castle - towers high above Bolzano: It owes its name to the Lords of Haselberg which had it built in the 12th century. Above the rock there was the residential complex surrounded by a circular wall towards east and south. The latest scientific data indicate that it included also a donjon and a rain water cistern. In the middle of the 16th century, Flavon Castle was enlarged by Leonhard II of Fiè which gave it its current appearance featuring a curtain wall, the double-arcade hall in the eastern wing and another great hall in the north.

Around 1880, parts of the northern wing collapsed so that today only parts of the beautiful fresco decorations are left. In 2001/02, the western, northern and eastern wings were carefully renovated by the architect Dietmar Dejori. Today Flavon Castle houses a well-known restaurant and offers lovely rooms for seminars and weddings. Private celebrations, however, are usually held in the tower which offers a stunning view on Bolzano. A pleasant spring and autumn hike leads in 1.5 hours from the quarter of Aslago (Haslach) to Flavon Castle and further on to San Giacomo.
