It is quite a trek but interesting to see. We've been to several castles and palaces and unfortunately this one does not have as much as we'd like to see. (Wish they had more armour and items from the era.) We saw everything in under an hour.
It is a relaxing ~30 minute walk from the city. The castle is well maintained and has impressive wall frescoes in many of the rooms. It's well worth your time if you have 2-3 hours to spare during your visit to Bolzano. The view from the castle was fantastic on a sunny day!
Catch a free shuttle van from Walther Plaza for the short drive up to the castle or walk uphill for about 40 minutes. There is a fairly steep, rough cobblestone road to get up to the castle. Rooms, frescoes, stories, history and exhibits are well displayed with Italian, German, and often but not always English explanations. There are multiple staircases... 更多
We used the Bolzano card for free access to the castle. The caste run a free shuttle from the square by the tourist info office. Short 10 min air con trip to the steep path which leads up to the castle, only 5 mins but not for those with mobility probes or silly shoes! Colourful frescoes inside and a small... 更多
This castle is one of the dozens scattered in the mountains. The thing that sets this apart is the collection of art inside. Built in 1237, this is the largest collection of art from that time Era still preserved in the castle. Take the time (and money) to enjoy the historical features! Everything is written in english german and Italian.
I had no idea we would have to walk up such a steep hill. But at the top was a gem, a stunning castle with frescos everywhere! And there is a restaurant to take lunch! There is free shuttle from Piazza Walther, but be sure to ask when they come. We waited 45 minutes in the heat because we had... 更多
I did this as a time-filler while in Bolzano, and I'm jolly glad I did. The castle is pretty, and very prettily situated on a hillside overlooking a fast-flowing stream. But what took me by surprise was the well-preserved set of paintings from the 1390s (showing e.g. the Round Table, Tristan and Isolde, and general scenes of courtly life like... 更多
Beside being a beautiful castel - like something taken straight from a fairytale, the castel also constrains one of the most amazing collections of medieval wallpaintings (and I have seen quite many). So If I have the opportunity I will definitely visit the castle again.
We took the free shuttle from the main town piazza to the Roncolo Castle. You need to walk up a very steep path to the top so some would find this too difficult. On arrival you are rewarded with a great castle that you self guide your way through. Lots of interesting rooms with a long history and some excellent... 更多
After some difficulty locating the shuttle -- in a typical Italian manner, the location had been changed due to road construction, but then changed back, and no one had bothered to remove the temporary sign or tell the driver that the old sign was still posted -- I found the right location, in Piazza Walther. As other reviewers have said,... 更多
