Boymont Castle

Above the village of Missiano, which belongs to the municipality of Appiano, the medieval ruin of Boymont rises into the sky.

Boymont Castle - "Burg Boymont" in German, "Castel Boymont" in Italian - is located on a forested rock spur above Missiano near Appiano. Findings prove that the castle hill was already settled in prehistoric times. The castle was built by the Counts of Appiano around 1235 AD, and was passed on as feud to the Boymont family. Around 1400, a certain Ulrich Kässler resided at this castle, who was secretary of Frederick IV, Duke of Austria (Frederick of the Empty Pockets). In 1413, he married Barbara von Boymont, while shortly afterwards the castle burnt down as an act of incendiarism, probably due to a quarrel on inheritance. From this point of time it fell into decay.

The decades between 1220 and 1240 are considered the most thriving years of castle building in Tyrol and exactly in this period of time also Boymont Castle was built. It was not constructed for defensive purposes and was therefore built in an appealing style from an architectonical point of view. Above all striking are the clear lines on the basis of which the castle was built. The square facility is atypical for the Medieval construction method. Elements in Romanesque and early-Gothic construction styles, however, can be admired, too - beautiful triforiums, windows with three arches, complete the circular wall. The main tower in the north-east, however, presents a rather strange opening in the form of a round arch directed towards east. On the first floor, above the entrance, there is the castle chapel.

The ruin has been consolidated and is in the possession of the owners of Corba Castle - Fritz Dellago, the present owner, had it renovated in 1977. In the inner courtyard there is a castle tavern offering beverages and traditional dishes. And how to reach Boymont Castle? It represents one of the castles you come across in the Three Castles Walk in Appiano (besides Appiano Castle and Corba Castle). From Corba Castle, however, Boymont is accessible in a 25-minute walk.
