Stachelburg Castle

Stachelburg Castle (or Stachlburg) is the second venerable building in Nalles on the Wine Road besides Swan Castle.

Where a small road leads from Nalles uphill towards Prissiano and Tesimo, there's a castle-like building boasting elements of early Renaissance. Stachelburg Castle dates right back to this period, that's to say to the first half of the 16th century. The elements of the Oltradige construction style - the outside staircase with loggia, the wooden ceilings and the decorative paintings - indicate its original purpose as a residence. The name, however, dates back to the Counts of Stachlburg which had their ancestral seat at the same-named Stachelburg in Parcines, approx. 20 km from Nalles.

In former times, a wall with crenellations protected the property towards the road, and a stone from the Roman era decorated the entrance area which can be seen in the Bolzano Municipal Museum today. A small tower still shows the coats of arms of the house of Habsburg and of Tyrol. The castle is inhabited by the Dalla Corte family which runs a small restaurant in its inside today. It offers typical regional dishes and a good glass of wine, served in the courtyard or in the Knights' Hall. And in autumn, of course, you can taste the delicious Törggele dishes.

Currently, access may be subject to certain restrictions.
