Like in a fairytale the small Castello al Lago is located on the western bank of the large Lake Monticolo.

In 1888 Josef von Zastrow, a guest from Germany, built the Castello al Lago castle. Also the Aichberg Residence and both lakes were in his possession then.
In 1902 the municipality of Appiano has become the owner of the whole terrain.
Still today the Castello al Lago castle is a perfect motif for paintings. Built in medieval style, it was perfectly adapted to the landscape. Gable windows with pointed arches cause a real magical atmosphere.
Along a walk around the lake you pass the Castello al Lago and also a tour through the Spring Valley towards Monticolo ends at the beautiful building.
