Special openings Festenstein 2023:

Do you know why I’m grinning?

A visitor recently asked me just before closing time

For joy!

Was his reply. That’s how overwhelmed he was with the castle and its wild landscape.

After years of restoration work, Castelforte is now open to visitors. On various dates, the Andriano Tourist Association enables a special opening of the castle.

Due to falling rocks, extraordinary openings are cancelled until the path is restored.


The castle can only be reached on foot:
1 hour from Andriano, steep and difficult trail
20 minutes from Gaido, downhill, moderately difficult trail
