Prösels Castle was built around 1200 by the Counts von Völs, aristocratic servants of the Bishops of Bressanone. In the early 16th century it was extended and converted by the Governor of Tyrol, Leonhard von Völs, to a Renaissance castle. The current castle is almost exclusively Leonhard’s works. 1981 the castle was purchased by the KURATORIUM SCHLOSS PRÖSELS GmbH.
