Reifenstein surmounts a mound of rock on the outskirts of Vipiteno/Sterzing. It is South Tyrol’s best preserved castle, given that it has never been attacked or ransacked.
A bridge still leads from the fore-fortress across a deep fosse to the main castle. Young knights and castle damsels are enthralled by the mysterious atmosphere and the old lavish halls.
