Burg Bruck was completed in 1278 as the residence of the Meinhardiner Counts of Gorz. In 1490 the chapel was decorated with frescoes by Simon von Taisten. In 1500 the last count Leonhard of Gorz bequeathed the castle to the Habsburg archduke Maximilian I of Austria, who incorporated it into his Tyrolean possessions.
During the Campaigns of 1796 in the French Revolutionary Wars it was occupied by French troops. Today Bruck Castle is a museum featuring many works of the painter Albin Egger-Lienz.
