Castle Rodeneck

High above the Rienz gorge, on top of the rocky edge one can see Castle Rodeneck with its mighty walls and its many rooms. During the Middle Ages, it was one of the safest defensive castles of the area and exactly this feeling of impregnableness can be felt by the visitors. It was built in 1140 by Friedrich I of Rodank. Until 1491 it was under sovereign administration. Then the castle became the property of the counts Wolkenstein-Rodenegg. The descendants of this family are still the owners of the castle today.

A highlight are the Iwein- frescoes by Hartmann von Aue dating from the 13th century which were just discovered in 1972. The frescoes are considered the oldest example of profane paintings in the German area. The castle chapel St. Michael is worth a visit as well as the armory and the castle garden.

Music and Church

This year as well the Brixen Initiative Music and Church offers different cultural events where the link between religion and art is in the foreground. One possibility is on 26th March, the concert at the Cathedral of Brixen. Information on further concerts / events on the website www.brixen.org or on http://www.musik-kirche.it
