Between Kirchdorf and Micheldorf lies the elevated Altpernstein Castle. The ravine between the castle rock and the mountainside - replacing the moat - is spanned by a stone bridge and leads to a two-storey gate building. Above the house stone portal are two openings that belonged to the lift mechanism of the drawbridge. The courtyard is enclosed by the elongated four-storey residential wing with a steeply pitched roof and the tower, which has been almost completely demolished and blocked up. In the courtyard itself is a marble fountain. The west side of the castle was secured by a simple wall with turrets in front. This enclosure has been converted into a viewing terrace.

In the residential wing is the knights' hall and an armoury. However, the porch housing the chapel is of interest, especially because of the still well-preserved, once feared dungeons. The gate wings are iron-clad, only they are not ordinary iron sheets but flattened armour, as can still be seen today. To secure the entrance, two towers were built on the opposite slope; the lower one is a square tower, popularly called the "powder tower", the upper one is a round tower.

The castle is open for visitors every Sunday from May to September (except 14. and 21.8. = closed) from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., on request a historical castle tour can be organized.
