Thun Castle

Ton, Italy

The monumental Thun Castle was built in the mid-13th century, but the current appearance dates mainly from the 16th and 17th centuries. The Spanish style gate built in 1566 in Moorish style, probably after Giorgio Thun was visited in Spain. The most famous room is the seventeenth-century Bishop's Room, entirely covered of pine wood, with a coffered ceiling and a tiled stove.

Today Thun castle is open to the public.

Pretty nice castle, one of the many nearby. You have free entere with Trentino card.

Beautiful place! I was not convinced by the castle seen from the outside, but the internals are absolutely beautiful!

Located in the heart of Trentino, in the midst of apple orchards, the fully furnished castle Thun offers an interesting insight into the life of Trentino nobles in days gone by

What a beautiful place. Everywhere you look you see a potential postcard.

Been there in February 2020. Amazing place, in a stunning location. The castle itself is perfectly maintained and the guided tour is very interesting. The audio guide is recommended but not mandatory: there is a lot to see and to learn, since the place has a very rich and long history. Nice and friendly personnel. Only one remark: if you go during winter or in the beginning of spring, be sure to wear a jacket, as in the rooms it gets really cold. Anyway, definitely recommended.

Kristiansten Fortress

Kristiansten Fortress was built to protect the city against attack from the east. Construction was finished in 1685. General Johan Caspar von Cicignon, who was chief inspector of kuks fortifications, was responsible for the new town plan of Trondheim after the great fire of 18 April 1681. He also made the plans for the construction of Kristiansten Fortress.

The fortress was built during the period from 1682 to 1684 and strengthened to a complete defence fortification in 1691 by building an advanced post Kristiandsands bastion in the east and in 1695 with the now vanished Møllenberg skanse by the river Nidelven. These fortifications were encircled by a continuous palisade and thereby connected to the fortified city. In 1750 the fortress was modernized with new bastions and casemates to protect against mortar artillery.
