Prösels Castle












Prösels Castle was built in 1200 by the masters of Völs, the noble servers of the bishop of Brixen. In the early 16th century, the head of the provincial government, Leonhard von Völs, turned the castle into a Renaissance residence. The castle as it looks today is almost entirely the work of Leonhard von Völs. In the year 1981, the company KURATORIUM SCHLOSS PRÖSELS Ltd. purchased the castle.

  4. I am quite surprised by your photo of the statue. It looks quite modern, almost like a Henry Moore. The castle looks great, but I have never wanted to live in one.
