Castle of importance

The castle belongs to the people of Grabs and gives its name to Werdenberg district, in the canton of St. Gallen. At the top of a hill, testimony to the enclave's geostrategic importance as part of the natural passage between eastern and western Europe. From the castle see beautiful views of the Rhine valley of St. Gallen, the mountains of Austria, Lietchenstein and Grabs. At the foot of the castle is a beautiful natural lake where ducks and swans can be seen and where locals stroll and rest when the weather allows. Also there is the old Grabs, the oldest houses preserved in Europe. Undoubtedly, the castle and its surroundings are full of beauty. Open to visitors and has different inside spaces for exhibitions, becoming an active cultural area.

Castle on the lake

Werdenberg Castle, overlooking the small lake Werdenbergersee, was built from the beginning of the thirteenth century on behalf of Count Rudolf von Montfort. Having survived numerous owners, wars and a fire in 1835 Johann Ulrich Hilty bought the castle in ruins and restored it deeply. The last owner of the castle, Frieda Hilty, donated it to the canton of St. Gallen in 1956, making it now a museum open to the public and prestigious venue for concerts and other cultural activities.

Castello sul lago

Il Castello di Werdenberg, che si affaccia sul piccolo lago Werdenbergersee, è stato costruito a partire dall'inizio del XIII secolo per conto del conte Rudolf von Montfort.
Dopo essere sopravvissuto a numerosi proprietari, guerre e un incendio, nel 1835 Johann Ulrich Hilty acquistò il castello in rovina e lo restaurò profondamente. L'ultimo proprietario del castello, Frieda Hilty, lo donò al cantone di San Gallo nel 1956, rendendolo oggi un museo accessibile al pubblico e sede prestigiosa per concerti ed attività culturali.
