Show sight on map

The castle ruin Pfeffersberg, also called Pfefferburg, is a castle ruin on the Pfeffersberg on the western slope of the Brixen valley kettle. The castle hill falls steeply after three sides and is protected against the mountain side in the west by a lowering with a relapse. A prehistoric settlement was found here. A treasure fact that refers to Pfeffersberg Castle indicates her old age. The foundations of the mountain fried and 3 m high, approx. 1.20 m thick walls, which come from the ring wall, which were probably installed here with the palas, are located on the hill. This ring wall is visible from afar and is wrongly considered a vineyard wall. The remains of an old fountain are located between Bergfried and Ringmauer. The entire system is strongly overgrown with scrub, so that their dimensions are difficult to recognize. The hill offers a good view of the city of Brixen and the entire valley basin.
