Vorst Castle

At the right riverside of the Adige, at the top of a rocky hill at Lagundo, there’s Vorst Castle (Forst).

Castel Vorst has been established in the 13th century and mentioned for the first time in 1302. The Counts von Vorst were ministerialis in Tyrol. After the Counts von Vorst there were the Counts von Starkenberg in the 14th century, and the Counts von Brandis in the 16th century. In the 16th century the castle complex was enlarged, and in 1880 it was again restored.

Two residential towers with merlons decorate the building, located on the street to Val Venosta. A chapel and a residential wing border the inner courtyard.

The current owners of the castle, the Fuchs family, also own the near Forst brewery. The castle cannot be visited.
