Südtiroler Landesmuseum für Jagd und Fischerei - Schloss Wolfsthurn

Deutsch | Italiano


In the 18th century Franz Andrä con Sternbach acquired the fort of Wolfsthurn above Mareit and between 1727 and 1741 constructed in its place the castle that to this day remains in the family’s possession.

The castle, a magnificent example of baroque architecture, clearly shows the enthusiasm of that time for games with numbers: Wolfsthurn allegedly has 365 windows, 52 doors, 12 fireplaces and four portals – allusions to the dates, weeks, months and seasons of the calendar year.
