    History

    How it started

    Today's Castel Rundegg was probably built in 1154 in Obermais. Originally, the castle was a fiefdom that was in the hands of respected farmers, the so-called Talhackers, until 1564.

    From fiefdom to noble residence


    In 1621, the estate came into the possession of Jakob von Mohr zu Lichtenegg, a refugee from the Grisons, who only a few years later, on 3 March 1625, received the rights and freedoms of a noble seat for Rundegg and permission to call himself by that name from Archduke Leopold. Jakob von Mohr zu Lichtenegg also was Bishop of Strasbourg and Passau.

    From the frequent change of ownership ...


    In 1684, Ferdinand von Kiepach zu Ried, Zimmerlehen and Haßlach is named as the owner. Around 30 years later, on 15 October 1714, his widow Dorothea sold the Rundegg estate to Baron Bernhardus Paravizini von Capelli von Trahora, Lord of Rundegg, Rametz and Moerling. He was an officer in the French army who, according to unofficial reports, resigned from the service after a duel in which he killed his opponent and settled at Rundegg Castle. He died on 29 April 1770 at the age of 104.

    ... to an "accommodation for travellers"


    In the brochure "A Guide for Travellers", published in 1851, Rundegg Castle is recommended as accommodation for travellers to Obermais. At that time it was still owned by the descendants of Baron Paravizini de Capelli. To be precise, the second surviving daughter of Baron Johannes Franziskus, who died at Rundegg Castle on 19 February 1878. 

    A start into a new era


    Castel Rundegg was acquired by the Spitaler brothers and became the property of the South Tyrolean entrepreneur Paul Sinn in 1976. He did not renovate the castle for himself, but turned it into a luxury hotel and started the first season in 1978. When Paul Sinn decided to sell the castle hotel, he found suitable buyers in the South Tyrolean entrepreneurial family Spögler, who ensured its continued use as a castle hotel.

    Fresh spirit, great visions and the fulfilment of a dream


    A breath of fresh air has been blowing through the old walls since 2016. The charismatic young hotelier David Kofler took over the Schlosshotel, thus fulfilling his great dream, and has been working continuously ever since to restore the old glamour without disregarding modernity.
