Wildegg Castle – Baroque Castle Domain and Wildegg Garden Paradise


The castle, which is now surrounded by gardens, pastures and vineyards, was founded around 1200 by the Hapsburgs. For eleven generations the Effinger Family owned the estate with all its holdings. Since 2011, Castle Wildegg has been the property of Canton Aargau, and Museum Aargau has taken over the operation of the museum.
