Further residences in Caldaro

Andergassen, Greifenburg, Strengherrnhof or Kaltenburg: the listed monuments in Caldaro include 119 properties.

In past centuries, Caldaro was a preferred - and climatically favoured - place to live for many noble families which had their residences built in the village, as well as for several convents. Among them there was the largest one of the Bavarian history, Tegernsee. Already in the 8th century AD, vineyards in Pianizza di Sopra (Oberplanitzing) belonged to its possessions. In this district of Caldaro still today there are several beautiful residences with turrets and oriels in the Oltradige construction style. One of them is called Andergassen - it features a fresco of St. Florian dating back to 1728 as well as the coat of arms of Jakob an der Gassen and Rosina Klinger at the archway. They inhabited the property in the 17th century, but presumably the manor is much older.

Also the historical Strengherrnhof Residence (in the image) rises in Pianizza di Sopra. It dates back to the 16th century and charms as well with its architectural details in the typical Oltradige style. It is the former residence of the local judge, Baron von Wohlgemuth. In the centre of Caldaro village (Kaltern Dorf), however, the von Pach Residence is situated, a listed monument with a 400 year-long history. It can be found in central position at the Piazza Maria von Buol square. Both buildings were carefully renovated and offer today accommodations in a beautiful historic setting.

In San Giuseppe al Lago (St. Josef am See) there are two manors: the Greifenburg, a quadrangular Renaissance building, was erected in 1612 by Nikolaus Greif. Today it is in possession of the Counts of Enzenberg, but the coat of arms of the Greif family can still be seen on its façade. The second residence, called Kaltenburg, was built around the same time by the master builder Bartolomeo del Galletto, on behalf of Friedrich Altstätter, lawyer and carer of the Termeno and Cortaccia Courts. The coat of arms on the outer walls is the one of the Lords of Wolkenstein, the owners in the 18th century. Since 1965, the Kaltenburg Residence belongs to the properties of Ignaz Brigl. It is - such as the other above mentioned buildings - a listed monument.
