Reinhold Messner and Juval Castle in South Tyrol

Juval Castle – Retreat of mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner

The medieval Juval Castle is the home of mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner and is not very far from the hotel Lindenhof in Naturns.

 

Staben Waal trail in Naturns – Excursion to Juval Castle

The most beautiful route to Juval Castle leads via the Staben Waal trail along the Sonnenberg Mountain. Once arrived at the Unterörtl vineyards, there are a further 200 altitude metres to be accomplished before reaching the castle. Having arrived at the top, you will not only be rewarded with fantastic view. Occasionally, Reinhold Messner himself gives you a guided tour of his fairy tale home. Many souvenirs from his mountain and adventure travels can be admired in the 'Saal der tausend Freuden - Hall of thousand Joys', in the 'Haus der Gnome und Trolle - House of Gnomes and Trolls' and the 'Bilderturm – Picture Tower'.

 

Juval Castle in Naturns - History

Juval Castle was built by Hugo von Montalban on the former site of a prehistoric settlement in 1278. It was owned by the von Starkenbergs for 100 years. The castle fell into disrepair due to the frequent change in ownership up until 1913. The Dutch colonial gentleman William Rowland purchased the castle in 1913 and redeveloped the castle grounds. The Juval Castle in South Tyrol has been Reinhold Messner’s home since 1983.
