High up on a hill towers the majestic castle of Pergine, guarding the Valsugana valley and the crystal-clear waters of Lake Caldonazzo.

Built in the 13th century, Castel Pergine was owned by the counts of Austria for quite some time, from Lady Margarethe Maultasch to the Austrian emperor Maximilian I. In 1521, the castle was passed on to the prince bishops of Trento. In 1900 it was bought by a German enterprise, which rennovated the place. Since then the castle has slowly been turned into a hotel and restaurant.
Worth seeing are the throne room and the Sant’Andrea chapel on the first floor. The five halls on the second floor host various exhibitions, ranging from local fruits and sites of interest to information about the castle itself. Moreover, you can look forward to temporary exhibitions, such as the sculptures and figures set up in the inner courtyard, the room of arms, the prison, the chapel and the park.
The ground, first and second floors are always open to the public.
On Mondays the castle is closed until 5 pm.
