Founded by the counts of Kyburg, Frauenfeld can look back on a rich history. To this day, Castle Frauenfeld, with its tower from 1227, as well as the rectangular layout of the old town is witness to that history. Magnificent legation houses from the 18th century invite you to a stroll through the narrow streets.
