In the Bolzano basin there are still many fortifications of a time long ago, in which noble families of South Tyrol tried to make visible the wealth, the prestige and the secular power with the construction of such facilities. In the midst of the checkerboard-like, picturesque vines landscapes that reach down from the mountain slopes to the city, there are numerous castles and palaces. One example of this is the fairytale-like Runkelstein Castle, South Tyrol's "Bilderburg", which has retained its splendor to this day: among other things, it offers the opportunity to admire Europe's most extensive cycle of medieval, profane frescoes.
