The history of the Trostburg dates back to the 12th century. Visitors discover Romanesque door and window arches, Gothic fortifications from the time of the minnesinger Oswald von Wolkenstein and late Gothic living culture from the 15th and early 16th centuries, as well as magnificent halls and panelling from the 16th and 17th centuries and Renaissance stucco and furnishings. Unexpected homeliness with idyllic squares characterises the building and its surroundings, whose architecture, however, is still essentially determined by the former knight's castle.

Everyone knows the Trostburg above the village of Waidbruck. But who also knows it from the inside? For Europe's castle lovers, visiting it has always been an "absolute must", but travellers from north to south or from south to north often drive past it. The Trostburg has been open to the public since 1977. The Trostburg can be enjoyed in peace and with attention to details.

The Trostburg is the seat of the South Tyrolean Castle Institute and the South Tyrolean Castle Museum. Recently, a newly constructed permanent exhibition "Castles - Buildings of History" has been on display in just three rooms and on the basis of 86 true-to-scale models. It offers a good insight into the history of the development of South Tyrolean castles. The Trostburg is open from Maundy Thursday (Thursday before Easter) until the end of October. A visit to the South Tyrolean Castle Museum Trostburg is currently only possible with guided tours (German, Italian, Italian).
