Some follow up status:
We managed to establish permanent toilet facilities at castle Rafenstain, thanks to the South Tyrolean Heimatschutzverein. They have been covered with local pine wood planks, in order not to disturb the eye. (Don’t worry, the doors will be soon painted as well. We are looking for a colour that matches the stones).
– Secondly, the old waterspring! It still exists! Actually its still in use and provides water for the vineyards around the castle. Thats why the wine tastes so good! The old well has been covered in the 1800’s, but its still intact inside.
More news will follow soon, stay tuned and again thank You for your support. It means so much for us!😊
