History of Juval Castle
Juval Castle was built in 1278 by Hugo von Montalban on the site of a prehistoric settlement. The fortress belonged to the noble von Starkenberg family for one century. After frequent change of ownership the fortress fell into disrepair in 1913. In 1913 the Dutch colonial master William Rowland bought and rebuilt Juval Castle. Juval Castle has been the home of the extreme alpinist Reinhold Messner since 1983.
