Fancy a trip back in time? Your wish is our command!
Sigmundsried Castle was first mentioned in the books of the Bavarian monastery Reichenbach, back in 1120. Around 200 years later, it became the ancestral seat of the Lords of Ried – and, after several changes of ownership, came into the possession of Archduke Sigismund der Münzreiche in 1471. It was him who rebuilt it into a hunting lodge and named it Sigmundsried. The castle is located on the famous Roman road Via Claudia Augusta and served as a checkpoint on the trade route. From 1841 to 1977 the castle was the seat of the district court of Ried in Tyrol, later it was used as a magazine for the Austrian Armed Forces. Since 1999 Sigmundsried has been owned by the municipality of Ried. The SigmundsRied cultural association offers guided tours during which you can admire the castle. And afterwards, we invite you to enjoy wellness in Austria in our wonderfully relaxing sauna facility. Sounds tempting? It certainly is!
