Castel Boymont rises above the village of Missiano and can easily be reached on foot.
In the 13th century, that is to say in 1235, the counts of Appiano constructed Castel d’Appiano. As feud it was passed on to the Boymont family, descending from the ministerial gender. In this period also the Korb family was involved into the feud.
About 200 years later, the right hand of Frederick of the Empty Pockets, Ulrich Kässler, inherited the mighty castle complex. About one decade later, Castel Boymont was object of an inheritance dispute and was destroyed by a fire. Afterwards the construction was lied waste, no-one wanted to reconstruct the complex.
A long time ago, in 1977, the present owner Dellago had the castle renewed and had the remnants consolidated. The residential buildings of the castle were constructed in the Middle Ages, the castle has never been venue for fights, as it has neither been constructed for this purpose, a fact that is also perceivable at the lushly decorated windows and fronts.
Already from afar you can see the regular layout of Castel Boymont. The architectural style refers to the Romanesque period and the period of the early Gothic style. In general, the construction and its peculiarities are not only interesting for the little ones.
Castel Boymont is by the way one of the three castles that can be visited in the frame of the so-called “Dreiburgenwanderung”, the Three Castles Walk, which is a relatively easy walk. Castel Boymont can be reached within a quarter from Castel Corba and hosts a tavern equipped with real knight elements. Snacks and beverages for your creature comforts are offered. From Castel Boymont you can reach the villages of Predonico and Gaido. This is also where Castel Festenstein and a great hiking area can be experienced.
We particularly recommend a visit to the castle in spring and autumn.
