The “Schenna blossoms” event series offers vacationers a unique opportunity to visit the two historic castles of Goyen and Schenna in South Tyrol while enjoying regional specialties and refreshing wines. On April 15, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., visitors can tour Goyen Castle, one of the oldest and best preserved castle complexes in the region, built as early as the 12th century. During the matinée, visitors have the rare opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of the inhabited part of the castle and experience the medieval flair of the castle courtyard. The event will be accompanied by “The Legendary St. Pauls Tschäss Band” and promises to be an unforgettable experience.
For those who want to experience even more castle charm, there is the opportunity to attend the matinée in the courtyard of Schenna Castle on May 13. There, in addition to regional food and drinks, artworks by local artist Judith Klotzner and “rosy” impressions for nose and palate by herbal pedagogue Jutta Tappeiner will be offered. The musical accompaniment will be provided by the band “Helga Plankensteiner & revensch”. Admission to both events is free, so it’s a great way for visitors to discover the beauty and history of these historic castles while enjoying local specialties.
