A Thousand Years of Living History
WELCOME TO ONE OF SWITZERLAND’S OLDEST AND MOST SIGNIFICANT HILLTOP CASTLES
Not only counts and dukes used to call Lenzburg Castle their home, also a German poet and an American adventurer once lived at this historically significant site. The castle has always been of great relevance to the region and lived through many political uprisings dated as far back as to the 12th century. In 1986 the castle was carefully renovated and finally opened to the public. Today, Lenzburg Castle offers a wide range of cultural events and activities for everyone who’s exited to embark on a journey back to the middle ages or simply relax and enjoy a day away from the grind.
Lenzburg Castle will re-open on 12th May 2020, following the Federal Council’s measures announced on 29th April. Please consult our safety measures in advance of your visit.
