Castel Hoertenberg embodies perfectly the spirit of Tales Hotels Collection. In the heart of Bolzano city, they present themselves “as a historical haven where luxury is to feel at home”. Here the hospitality is authentic and genuine. In a charming corner of the city centre stands proud of a Renaissance castle. Surrounded by four majestic towers Castel Hoertenberg, at a glance, looks out of time, a peaceful and quiet oasis a stone’s throw away from the buzzing city. The Castle has a long and exciting story and as every good tale a happy ending.

It began over 500 years ago when Leonard Hiertmair arrived in the city of Bolzano transformed the estate, located in one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, into a mansion. He became Mayor of Bolzano and lately, he received by the emperor the title of baron changing his family name from Hiertmair to von Hiertenberg and later in “von Hörtenberg”. In 1862, since there were no male heirs, the Castle was bought by Hieronymus Giovanelli related to von Hörtenberg Family through his wife. The Giovanelli family owned the Castle until the XX century, its location and its importance make of it one of the landmarks of Bolzano.

The Giovanelli’s personally and financially supported the Tyrolean revolt, and in 1808 and 1809 Castel Hoertenberg became the headquarter of Andreas Hofer commander of the insurgents. At the turn of the century, between XIX and XX, baroness Maria Giovanelli von Hörtenberg Zu Gertburg marries Baron Ludwig von Fuchs, and Castel Hoertenberg becomes part of the von Fuchs estate.

A few years ago the owners sold it to the Podini family.
