Rietberg castle has a rich history behind it. The episode of Pompey of Planta murder by Jörg Jenatsch in 1621 is probably the most famous of many. Do not worry, this happened in other rooms of the castle, far away from the knight's hall! There were also many owner changes in this area between Pratval and Almens. The Bishop of Chur, the Travers, the Salis, the Planta, the Rosenroll, the Buol, all of them were more or less owners or co-owners of the castle. From 1758 Buol-Schauenstein were sole owners of Rietberg, and they had among other things set up the baroque Knight's Hall of the castle.

It is a luxury room of 78 square meters in noble white. Above the door is a portrait of Emperor Rudolf II (1552 - 1612) and the hall itself is dominated by a fireplace with the coat of arms of Buol-Schauenstein, surrounded by allegorical animal representations. To the left and right of the fireplace, two figures are watching in their niches.

All the rooms have been lavishly renovated and restored respecting history and tradition, with attention to detail. The fascinating connection between historical elements and modern facilities is another highlight.

With this holiday residence, we now have the opportunity to make part of this facility available to the public. As this castle is of national importance and I, like my children, grew up here, we wish to have visitors who treat the rooms and facilities with appreciation and respect.

In addition, different works of art by the artist Corinna Franke enrich the residence. The castle inspired her so much that some of the exhibited works were created before the big renovation in the Knights' Hall.

Carrie Gibson and Sella Caviezel are a very sympathetic and helpful administrative couple who are always at your side. They occupy another floor of the building next to the holiday residence. They are looking forward to your visit and will be happy to help and advise you.

We are happy to provide a seasonal, self-catering, breakfast basket filled with farm fresh and local ingredients if booked in advance. The price will vary depending on season and availability.

Thank you for your interest and best regards

Christian Bürge, owner
