Castel Gardena (Fischburg)
Where La Selvastrasse, Selva di Val Gardena (Bolzano/Bozen)
The name "Fischburg" means "Castle of fishing" and derives from the many lakes that the owner had to dig to raise trout. Built in 1641 by Counts of Wolkenstein, with the intervention of the sculptor-architect Hans Reichle of Schongau, Castle was used as a hunting lodge, in Renaissance style with elements of fortification. Privately owned, Castle can not be visited, although in summer, during "Valgardenamusika" festival, concerts are held in its courtyard.
