Engadin Scuol

Lower Engadin's famous landmark

Tarasp Castle

Built in 1040, the majestic Tarasp Castle is a well-known landmark in the Lower Engadin region. Tarasp belonged to Austria at the beginning of the 19th century. Around the turn of the 20th century, the ruined castle was purchased and renovated by K.A. Lingner, a German businessman who frequented spa resorts in the area and was the inventor of Odol mouthwash. On 30 March 2016, the world-famous Engadin artist Not Vital became the new owner of Tarasp Castle. His vision is to turn the castle, which is already open to the public, into a national and international cultural attraction featuring contemporary art and a sculpture park. Castle tours are held regularly – in summer there are sometimes several each day. Organ concerts bring the mighty 3,000-pipe wooden organ to life all year round and make a lasting impression on audiences.
