Schadau Castle


Thun - Schleuniger Switzerland

Thun - Schleuniger Switzerland

Schadau Castle was built between 1846 and 1854 for the Neuchâtel banker Denis Alfred de Rougemont. The location of the castle, on the southern banks of Lake Thun where the River Aare flows out of the lake, and with its views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, is almost as attractive as the architecture itself.

The building, built in place of an old manor house in the 19th century, features romantic and neo-Gothic style elements and is surrounded by an extensive English park landscape in which the panorama of Thun and Scherzligen Church are integrated. Schadau Castle is now home to the "Restaurant Arts" gourmet restaurant and the Swiss Gastronomy Museum as well as the registry office for the Oberland West Civil Registry District. Between 1972 and 1992, the castle façade was completely renovated by the city's stone carvers.
