1. Burgruine Pfefferburg / Pfeffersberg 13.Jhd

Show sight on map

The castle ruin Pfeffersberg, also called Pfefferburg, is a castle ruin on the Pfeffersberg on the western slope of the basin of Brixen. The castle hill drops steeply on three sides and is protected against the mountain side in the west by a depression with a fallback hilltop. A prehistoric settlement has been established here. A treasure legend referring to Pfeffersberg Castle points to her old age. On the top of the hill are the foundations of the keep and further east 3 m high, about 1.20 m thick walls, which originate from the ring wall, which was probably built here with the Palas. This curtain wall is visible from afar and is mistaken for a vineyard wall. Between the keep and the curtain wall are the remains of an old well. The entire complex is heavily overgrown by undergrowth, so that its dimensions are difficult to recognize. The hill offers a good view over the city of Bressanone and the entire valley basin.
