Tradition meets modernity.

Schloss Friedberg in Volders in Tyrol was built in late Gothic style during the 13th century (in 1230, to be exact) by the powerful counts of Andechs. It is located in a magnificent natural setting.

The castle was first mentioned in records in 1268; its ownership changed hands many times. In 1492, the castle was sold to the Fieger dynasty, one of the most powerful and influential families in Tyrol at the time and great lovers of art. In 1968, a fresco stretching across all four walls was discovered in the Knights’ Hall; the fresco was created in 1510. The “Roman Emperor Room” receives its name from 24 bust portraits of the Roman Emperors and their wives, painted on marble and dating from the 17th century.

The Fieger dynasty died out in 1802, and in 1844 the castle passed to Count Johann Trapp.  His son Ludwig renovated the building, which had fallen into a state of disrepair, during the years 1847-1854 and extended large sections of the second floor.

From 2006 to 2009, the castle was extensively but carefully renovated by Count Gaudenz, meaning that the property could be used both as a place of residence and a hotel. Modern technology such as internet, heating and ventilation systems, as well as an ingenious integrated lift system to the suites and a unique interior decoration style spanning late Gothic, Classical and Modern – all of this provides everything a historical building needs as it carries on into the future.

The castle was made accessible to the public for the first time in 2012. As both a cultural asset and a residential castle, guests can look forward to a very private hideaway of which they have exclusive use for various events and overnight stays.

The Count Trapp family still lives in the first floor of Schloss Friedberg. More than just occasionally, you may bump into the family personally during your visit to Schloss Friedberg and learn some interesting details about the castle’s history dating back over 700 years.
