The founding members are the municipalities of the Osttiroler Oberlandes Heinfels, Sillian, Außervillgraten, Innervillgraten, Kartitsch, Untertilliach, Obertilliach, Abfaltersbach, Strassen as well as the Loacker family: The aim is to create a possibly far-reaching, cross-border membership base with a strong focus on culture, the economy, tourism, politics, and open partnerships. Natural and legal persons as well as partnerships can become members of the association.
Ours is a non-profit association and our aims are to carry out ideal projects without a financial return. According to the statues, the aim of the association is to:
Revitalise and maintain the cultural heritage that is Heinfels Castle
Incentivise cultural aims as well as projects and partnerships focusing on culture and the preservation of historical monuments
Plan and implement cultural events
Carry out scientific research and documentation, as well as developing our public relations endeavours
Preserve the historical function of the castle together with our partner region, South Tyrol, and the other member states of the European Union.
Build a library and a painting gallery.
The joint goals of the Museumsverein Burg Heinfels (which oversees its open use) and Loacker (which oversees its private-sector use) are to liven up and redevelop this historic castle. Beside the open and private-sector use, Heinfels Castle will also be open for tourist, cultural and private events.
