Toblino Castle

Calavino, Italy

Toblino is one of the most famous castles in Trentino. It owes its fame to a unique location and the beautiful environment that surrounds it, but also to the many dark legends that found a fertile ground to originate and grow in that park and among those walls. The structure is built on a small peninsula of Lake Toblino.

Since the 1100s the castle was owned by the vassals of Prince Bishop of Trento, but has changed hands several times. In 1848 it was besieged by the volunteer corps of Lombardian army.

The present appearance of Toblino castle, that is now an elegant restaurant, is the result of a reconstruction ordered by Bernardo Cles in the 16th century.

Wow what an amazing venue, staff and the food I don't think the words can describe. I highly recommend the beef. We came with a dog and the was no problem. The two gentlemen that looked after us were very professional and made us feel welcome from the very first moment. I highly recommend to visit!

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
