Very nice knight's castle from the outside. Privately owned and therefore cannot be viewed from the inside.
Luisa Duri (2 years ago)
It can be reached along an easy and shady path in the woods, which in the first part runs alongside the course of the Rienza. It dates back to the 12th century and belonged to the feudal lords of the bishop of Bressanone. Towards 1380 the counts of Gorizia took over. During the War of the Tyrol it was destroyed twice. In 1812 it was sold to the priest Josef Hauptmann, whose descendants are the current owners. The adjacent chapel is dedicated to Saint Kummemus and is very popular. The castle cannot be visited. From the plateau in front of it you can admire a beautiful panorama that reaches up to Kronplatz.

A beautiful castle that can only be seen from the outside because it is privately owned, unfortunately

Proprietà privata, con tanto di cartello. Non visitabile agli interni. Per questo motivo non ci sono gli orari di visita. Ci sono solo delle passeggiate. I padroni sono poco cordiali, state alla larga da loro!

Petersberg Citadel

The Petersberg Citadel is one of the largest extant early-modern citadels in Europe and covers the whole north-western part of the Erfurt city centre. It was built after 1665 on Petersberg hill and was in military use until 1963. It dates from a time when Erfurt was ruled by the Electors of Mainz and is a unique example of the European style of fortress construction. Beneath the citadel is an underground maze of passageways that can be visited on guided tours organised by Erfurt Tourist Office.

The citadel was originally built on the site of a medieval Benedictine Monastery and the earliest parts of the complex date from the 12th century. Erfurt has also been ruled by Sweden, Prussia, Napoleon, the German Empire, the Nazis, and post-World War II Soviet occupying forces, and it was part of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). All of these regimes used Petersberg Citadel and had an influence on its development. The baroque fortress was in military use until 1963. Since German reunification in 1990, the citadel has undergone significant restoration and it is now open to the public as a historic site.
