Castles & Palaces in the Silberregion Karwendel

The world more than 100 years ago


Castles and palaces belong to Tyrol - and especially to the Silberregion Karwendel. High up on the mountain or in the midst of untouched nature, the ancient buildings can be found. Some stand empty and you can make up your own story on a tour about how it might have been here 100 or even more years ago. Others have exhibition rooms and museums where it becomes clear how life was long ago in the Silberregion Karwendel.
