Lenzburg Castle

History comes to life in its original setting at Lenzburg Castle, one of Switzerland's most beautiful and outstanding hilltop castles.

The castle complex as it stands today developed over a period of some 900 years. During this time it went through various changes: it was a counts' residence, the seat of Bernese bailiffs and eventually the private home of wealthy American families. A diverse programme of workshops, activity days and various medieval events transport visitors back to the age of chivalry. Set off on a journey through time!
