Stachelburg Castle

Stachelburg (or Stachlburg) Castle is a castle-like building boasting elements of early Renaissance.

Castel Stachelburg in Nalles dates back to the second half of the 16th century, the early Renaissance period. The aim of the constructors was to have a rather decorative structure built. For this reason Stachelburg Castle boasts several bays, a perron, wooden ceiling and decorative paintings. At the entrance of the building formerly was a stone from the Roman era, which can be watched in the Bolzano Municipal Museum today.

The name of the residence dates back to the Counts von Stachlburg, their ancestral seat was the same- named Stachlburg (or Stachelburg) in Parcines. In the 16th century Georg Stachl, once burgrave of Foresta Castle near Lagundo, was ennobled with the title “von Stachlburg”. Stachelburg Castle in Nalles was the administration centre of the Counts von Stachlburg, who also owned Casatsch Castle above Nalles.

For several generations now Stachelburg Castle has been in private ownership. The Dalla Corte family opened the Stachelburgkeller restaurant in these ancient walls several decades ago. And autumn is the right time for a Törggele evening!
