Castel Pergine is a medieval castle that has been converted into an impressive hotel with a delicious on site restaurant. Here’s all the info for visiting.
Castel Pergine, or Castle Pergine depending on where you’re from, is located in the town of Pergine Valsugana.
Just a 10 minute drive from Levico Terme, or a 20 minute drive from Caldonazzo, it’s easily accessible from anywhere in the region.
Public transport is available from both Levico and Caldonazzo via the local train stations. Simply follow the R25 or R26 service.
From Pergine town centre it is roughly a 30 minute walk (1.7km). However, the majority of the journey is up hill.
We recommend renting a car for your entire Italy trip. That way you can pick up the car from the airport and explore the region at ease. Another option is of course a private taxi to Castel Pergine.
For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

What To Pack
Castel Pergine History
Castel Pergine was built in the 13th century and was owned by the Counts of Austria for quite some time.
Positioned high up on the hill, it was used for guarding the Valsugana valley and the surrounding areas, such as Lago Di Caldonazzo.
The castle was then passed on to the Prince Bishops of Trento in 1521. Then in 1900 it was bought by a German enterprise who decided to completely renovate Castel Pergine and turn it into a hotel and restaurant.
An overnight stay in an authentic medieval castle!
Situated high on the hills above the little town of Pergine, guests can look forward to waking up to spectacular views over the Valsugana Valley and the Dolomites.
The ground, first and second floors are open to the public. As well as, of course, the high quality restaurant, where you can enjoy romantic candlelit dinners and some elegant, fine dining.
The throne room and the chapel on the first floor are definitely worth seeing.
The five halls on the second floor host various exhibitions, ranging from local fruits to interesting information about the past, present and future of the castle.
Although, nothing beats actually staying in the castle itself. With 20 rooms available, Castel Pergine has a garden, bar, shared lounge, free WiFi, as well as a beautiful sun terrace.
