Perhaps the boldest location of any castle

The ruins of Schrofenstein Castle (also called “Schroffenstein”) stand at 1122 metres above sea level in the community of Stanz bei Landeck in the Tyrolean Highlands. It was built upon the cliff ledge to the east of Stanz bei Landeck and above the Landeck district of Perjen. The location of the castle makes it possible to see the traffic routes into Vinschgau and over the Arlberg, as well as the Fern Pass.

The local court was also based in Schrofenstein for a short while. It housed ministers from Chur, before becoming the home of the Tyrolean Schrofenstein family in the 13th century until they died out in 1546. Following this, it was owned by the counts and princes of Trautson for a long period. The castle began to deteriorate in the second half of the 19th century. All that remains today is the 12-metre-high castle keep, which has been renovated by the private owner. Around 50 metres below the castle, you can still find the remains of a barn that belonged to it. The farmyard was situated somewhat further away, towards Stanz
