Ehrenberg Castle Ensemble, Reutte


Visitors who have been to this part of Tirol before may know Ehrenberg Castle because of its medieval games which take place each year in summer and draw visitors from many countries. Whatever the time of year, this attraction near Reutte is well worth a visit and has plenty to offer for all ages and interests.

Built around 1290, the gothic Ehrenberg Castle has over the centuries been home to many counts, princes and kings. Today the ruins of this once mighty fortress lie at the heart of the Burgenwelt Ehrenberg, an ensemble also including the baroque Schlosskopf Fortress, the Ehrenberger Klause in the valley and the Fort Claudia. Together they once formed a formidable defence complex which has also served as an administrative building and customs station. Visitors can journey back in time to the Middle Ages and find out what life would have been like here for knights and their followers. All in all there are 14 showrooms open to the public. Children can look forward to special highlights such as treasure hunts, an outdoor play area and a magic forest. There is also a separate exhibition about the Lech river, the last remaining wild river landscape in Europe. Last but not least, those with strong nerves can walk to Fort Claudia across the Highline179, a 400m hanging footbridge high above the ground.
