Welsberg & Hochpustertal
Welsperg Castle is a beautiful destination that is also easy to reach – practically a must for every holidaymaker to Welsberg. The well-preserved castle can be visited from July to September, and is possibly one of the most beautiful cultural monuments in the Pustertal.
A hike to the Taistner Alm (alp) is imperative both in summer and winter, and a guided tour of the romantic St. George’s Church is a must for all culture enthusiasts.
Paul Troger, Austrian Baroque painter, was born in Welsberg as the son of a sacristan and tailor on 30 October 1698. His “Troger blue” is to date still captivating. The tour begins at the house where he was born, then proceeds to the Parish Church, where three of his works adorn the altar, and finally sweeps you away to further stops throughout the charming village of Welsberg.
