Hünegg Castle is a castle in the municipality of Hilterfingen of the Canton of Bern in Switzerland. It is a Swiss heritage site of national significance.HistoryHünegg Castle was built in 1861-63 for the Prussian Baron Albert Emil Otto von Parpart. However, he was only able to enjoy the castle for a few years since he died in 1869. It eventually passed to his nephew in 1883, who sold off the art collection and then in 1893 sold it to the Berlin commercial judge Karl Lehmann. He owned the property for only six years before it was acquired by Gustav Lemke-Schuckert. Lemke-Schuckert, an architect from Wiesbaden, renovated the interior in the Art Nouveau style. At the beginning of World War II the castle was sold to Oscar Haag from Küsnacht, who then sold the building to the Canton in 1958. Today it houses the Renaissance Revival and Art Nouveau Museum.The interior has been meticulously preserved or recreated to give an impression as if the 19th century owners just left.Special exhibitionsThe castle as well as the castle park are available for temporary exhibitions. So the Mountain railways special exhibition in the Hünegg Castel take place for example in 2012, 2013 and 2014 from May to October.Mountain railways special exhibition in the Hünegg CastelOne such exhibition was the Swiss Mountain Railways Special Exhibition that was mounted between May and October 2012, and again between May and October 2013.

The castle itself was closed so we only got a chance to stroll on its park, which was really nice and quiet. There are many different paths that you can walk and you can get at the castle without doing any stairs (it's simply the longest way). You get to see some birds and even some kangaroos. There's also a playground for children on one side.
Very nice 19th century castle in a great condition with plenty of original furniture. One of the best household museums I've ever seen. Not too small, not too large either. Takes around 1-1.5 h to carefully see everything on the self-guides tour.
