The castle was erected by the two brothers Friedrich and Beral, Lords of Wangen.
The brothers Niklaus and Franz Vintler, descendants of an old and wealthy merchant family
of Bozen bought the castle in 1385 and let it illuminate inside and outside with the frescoes.

The so-called summer-house was erected in 1390 by the Vintlers too. Inside you can see
the terra- verde (green-earth) – paintings with the themes of the novel of Tristan and Isold
and one of the oldest presentations of king Arthur’s round table as a wall-painting.
We inform our visitors that the Summer House with the literary themed frescoes (Tristan and Isolde, King Arthur and the Round Table) will remain closed for some months due to safety assessments.
The frescoes of the Eastern Palace (“Bathroom”, Tournament Room etc.) will remain visible, and so will the temporary exhibition.
Thank you for your understanding!
Tristan fights the dragon, Tristan Room
Contrary to the literary themes of the summer-house you can find inside
the western palace in five rooms scenes of the daily life of the nobles.
Especially fascinating is the chamber of bath and the hall of the joust.
Joust, Tournaments’ Room
In summary it may be said that the frescoes are a testimony of the daily life of the nobles,
the fashion of this time, the joust and the ideas of the end of the 14th century and
an art-historical, invaluable jewel of the medieval time.
