THE TIMELESS BEAUTY OF PAST ERAS

Wining and dining at the Boymont Castle

A journey back in time to the High Middle Ages. Only the freshly prepared dishes create a delicious bridge back to the present time. The romantic Boymont Castle has had an eventful history. In the inner courtyard, renovated in keeping with the original style, the wine tavern will pamper you with ribs and roast made daily in the smoker.

The hill above Schloss Hotel Korb was already settled in prehistoric times as findings from the Iron Age clearly establish. Boymont Castle was built on the rocky ridge of a hill by the count of Appiano in 1230. It was built not as a fortress but as the seat of a noble family dedicated to comfortable living and luxuriousness as impressively proven by the castle keep. This medieval inner courtyard is one of the most beautiful in South Tyrol.

The counts of Appiano passed down this medieval castle along the Boymont lineage as a fiefdom. In 1400, ownership passed to Ulrich Kässler, the secretary of Duke Friedrich, through marriage. He married Barbara von Boymont in 1413. In 1425, the residence burned down completely. After falling into ruin, the mostly destroyed castle came into the possession of several owners. a

In 1977, Fritz Dellago bought the ruins and began extensive renovations. The two knight's halls as well as the romantic stone-framed arched window, pillars, and capitals are certainly worth seeing. Over the course of renovations, Fritz Dellago also constructed a wine tavern.

Old traditions are still alive in this wine tavern: dishes made from medieval recipes are served here. You can reach the wine tavern from Schloss Hotel Korb in a 25 min. walk. You will be rewarded with probably the best ribs from the smoker far and wide.
