Möderndorf Castle reflects the history of the middle Gail valley. It is surrounded by agricultural buildings and stands out due to its cubic, three-storey construction. Several stylistic epochs can be recognized in the building fabric.
The name of the castle first appears in a document in 1331 in the parish bar of Hermagor.
Today Möderndorf Castle enjoys an excellent reputation as a regional museum of folk culture.
The building houses the collection of the Essl family from Hermagor, which is important in terms of folklore and cultural history. On four floors
numerous showpieces offer insights into significant developments in the respective eras. Particularly interesting exhibits are for example the
300 million year old seal tree from the Carnic Alps, the Luther Bible from 1541 and an original Upper Gail Valley Kesn with farming tools.
The castle is located in the immediate vicinity of the cycle path and is a special recommendation for pedal fans.
Around the historic building there is a lot of free space and greenery, so the complex offers an idyllic environment for relaxing breaks in a romantic atmosphere.
