Perched on a hilltop between Jenbach and Schwaz high above Inntal Valley, this imposing castle was first mentioned in a historical document in the 13th century. It was originally built to defend the border to Germany’s Bavaria. Rebuilt by the Fugger Family, a dynasty of merchants, it became the very embodiment of a 16th century Tirolean castle that proudly stands as a reminder of our past and reflects the medieval glory in which the nobility of yesteryear lived. As you wander through the vaulted halls of magnificent Tratzberg Castle you will learn about the families who dwelled here. Its ornate Habsburg Hall with the enormous family tree of the House of Habsburg, the Gothic Fugger Parlour, the King’s Room, valuable artworks and paintings and the impressive arcaded courtyard await your exploration. Special guided tours are organised for children, where they can join in the living interpretation and re-enactment with costumed guides who reveal the secrets and scandals of castle life. “Tratzi” and “Adele”, the castle mascots, invite little ones to a quiz that is bustling with tasks to stimulate curious minds. The sights, scenes and sounds of Tratzberg Castle and its environs all combine to recreate the atmosphere of the era.
