The castle complex situated on a prehistoric site was built in 1278 by Hugo von Montalban. Since 1983 it has been the residence of Reinhold Messner and a place of several art collections: a vast Tibetika collection, a mountain picture gallery and a mask collection from five continents.
The Unterortl wine-growing estate and the Oberortl organic farm (farm holidys) whose home-grown products are offered in the Schlosswirt restaurant both belong to the complex and the therefore part of a general concept aiming at the preservation and revival of this small South Tyrolean cultural landscape.
