Runkelstein Castle (Italy)
Trentino-Alto Adige See list of castles in Italia
The Castle was built in 1237 by brothers Friedrich and Beral von Wangen.
More than a century later, the brothers Niklaus and Franz Vintler, belonging to a rich family of shopkeepers from Bolzano, bought Castel Roncolo and had it frescoed with subjects of a secular character.
In 1390 the Vintler family built the so-called "Casa d'Estate" next to the Romanesque building. Inside there are not only frescoes in green earth depicting the legend of "Tristan and Isolde" by Gottfried von Straßburg, but also one of the oldest depictions on fresco of the round table of King Arthur.
