Kronburg ruins

The castle hill on which the Kronburg ruins rise today, was already inhabited in prehistoric times.

In 380 Johann von Starkenberg received permission to build a castle. 1423 the Starkenberger were involved in an uprising against the prince Friedl with the empty bag. After the suppression of the uprising, the Kronburg was taken away. In 1504, the sovereign Maximilian I transferred the castle as a fief to the Fieger family, who generously rebuilt it and provided it with outbuildings. In 1802 the Fieger died out. Since 1766 the castle was no longer inhabited and abandoned to decay. In 1985 the association "Rettet die Kronburg" was founded and the castle was restored. Below the mountain with its characteristic silhouette lies the pilgrimage church Kronburg with the inn Kronburg. The pilgrimage Kronburg can be reached on a good road (3 km) via Schönwies or on foot from Rifenal (1/2 hour). From the place of pilgrimage a steep path leads to the castle ruins, walking time approx. 15 minutes uphill.

Great rest stop at the inn Kronburg - Tiroler Wirtshaus and partner of GenussWerkstatt TirolWest .
