Trostburg Castle is a small castle, probably built in the 12th century, though nothing is known of its early history. The castle fell into ruin by the 18th century. In 1754 it was described as looking like a peasant's hovel.
In the early 20th century it was partly rebuilt by a German butcher, but World War I prevented project completion. A large part of the western curtain wall collapsed in 1922. In 1933 it was acquired by another private owner who used the castle as his private residence. An archeological project in 1999 explored the history of the castle and also repaired and strengthened many of the walls.
