Strasserwirt **** Tyrolean Manor House

The Heimfels Castle

One of the most popular destinations around the Strasserwirt – restored and reopened since 2021!

According to legend, Heinfels Castle was founded by the Huns. As “Hun people” here is one of the tribes,
or rather a part of it, which infested the Puster Valley during the Migration Period.

According to a historical research, the Avars, sometimes called Huns and also related to you, should have been the founders of Heinfels. In any case, the castle was mentioned in documents late, around 1243. As the seat of the counts of Gorgozer, the castle was an important base in the Puster Valley and thus also a regional court. However, the actual seat of the judge was Sillian, for which there is evidence from the 13th century.

After the extinction of the Counts of Gorizia (1500), Heinfels Castle passed with the entire reign to Emperor Max. 1. who refortified the castle complex.

However, he did not keep the castle himself, but pledged it to the prince-bishop of Brixen for lack of money. In 1613 the castle was partially destroyed by fire and in 1714 by an earthquake.
