The castle is steeped in history and the Von Trapp family still reside there. You see the castle as you drive into the town. Walk up as the views are worth it although there is a car park close to the castle. Closes at 12pm, reopens at 14.00hrs.

This is a great castle to visit. The family Trapp still lives here, and it's very well kept. Almost everything inside is original, and it provides an insider view of the life from the 1100 to the 1800. Our guide, Mr. Gunther, was great and made the visit interesting but real and never boring. It may be a little hard... More

The castle itself is very beautiful. To visit the castle, you take a tour which lasts about an hour. We bought a family pass, so the price was not expensive. the tour takes you through several rooms of the castle, although there is also a large portion that is not open to the public as it's still inhabited. The castle... More

We have visited quite a few castles in Alto Adige and so far have not been disappoint. Castel Coira would have to be one of the jewels in the crown. We had a guide who took her time and explained each item of interest with great enthusiasm. It was evident that she enjoyed what she did and we weren't regarded... More

I expected just another castle but found this one was well preserved and had the most impressive collection of armor I have seen. The guide was good and answered questions and spoke English. Tour was about an hour long. The castle is privately owned by a well known Austrian family so parts are closed off. Recommended!

The castle is privately owned and is in very good condition. You can only join a guided tour, but it's worth it. The walk up from the village to the castle is very pretty.

My visit to castle "Churburg" has been today, hence, my memories are still vivid. During a visit it's non-optional to partake either to a German or an Italian tour (it might be possible for English speaking people to have a separate tour - as I'm a German speaker I didn't bother to ask -). Unfortunately it's not possible to stray... More

Preserved in early Renaissance style, this castle has been in the same family for over 500 years. Today a backwater, the region was of great strategic importance from late Antiquity through the Middle Ages and into the 17th Century, and it was fascinating to be reminded that today's borders are a mere accident. Apart from the complex itself, the two... More
