Velturno Local Museum

Velturno Castle, once the summer residence of the prince-bishops of Bressanone, now houses the Local History Museum of the village

The small Velturno Local Museum - "Heimatmuseum Feldthurns" in German, "Museo Locale di Velturno" in Italian - is housed in the old chancellery of Velturno Castle, a magnificent Renaissance building from the 16th century. It displays a collection of rural and craft objects used in viticulture and wood processing. The building itself is also worth seeing.

The works in the interiors are among the most important artistic carpentries of the Renaissance in the southern German region. The chapel on the ground floor, built in memory of Katharina von Madruzzo, the mother of Prince Bishop Spaur, can be visited. In addition, the rooms of the 1st and 2nd floors can be visited, including the chaplain's room, the bedroom, the prince's room, the magnificent majolica stove, and the world wonder cycle with wall paintings by Pietro Bagnatore.

The museum is completed by the "Archeoparc Velturno Tanzgasse", a Copper Age cult site located in the village, which was opened in 2008. Its megalithic complex consists of stone circles, tumuli and ellipse-like structures. And how to reach the Velturno Local Museum? Velturno Castle is located in the central Via del Paese road, there is a car park behind the building.
