  • What a find! A delightful schloss to visit on a balmy May day. We walked to it along the banks of the Hallwiler Lake, which was a very pleasant thing to do in stonking sunshine. Very good value...

  • A castle with a fully active moat, quite remarkable. The castle is well preserved and beautiful. Truly takes you back to medieval times. Lots of hiking trails around and in a nice setting. Free parking across the street.
  • This impressive 11th century castle was built on two islands by the Von Hallwyl family, who then held the castle for 800 years. Today, the castle has been turned into an interactive museum about the history of the castle, the family, and life in the middle Ages. Labels are in German, with audio commentary in English. There is a bistro on site. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
