Intro

Lenzburg is located in Central Switzerland, around 25-kilometers west of Zurich, by the A1 Motorway. And thanks to numerous fast train connections, Lenzburg is also easily reached with public transport.

A town fit for all! Lenzburg lies at 405-meter altitude, is populated by around 8,800 inhabitants, and extends over a total 1,132-hectare area, 600 of which are woods. The small town with medieval Old Town of national importance is discovered at the heart of the Lenzburg castle region; home to the Lenzburg, Hallwyl, Wildegg, Brunegg and Habsburg castles.

Winter

Visitors during the winter months experience a quieter town, at a time when the castle doors are closed. Although, as Christmas draws closer, diverse events such as the traditional Chlauschlöpfe and Christmas market add festive colour and warmth - together with diverse tasteful restaurants that tempt you to a delicious bite to eat.

Summer

The characteristic Old Town is an attractive place to linger – and the proud Castle Lenzburg, one of Switzerland’s most famous castles. Atop a hill, today the castle is home to a museum and a great place to learn some history; with the aid of additional regional museums that live to tell the story of this interesting town and region. In particular, the “Esterliturm” tower in the Lenzburg Castle offers extensive views over Lenzburg as far the Black Forest and central Switzerland.

  • Located on a rocky outcrop above the town of the same name Lenzburg Castle is one of the most beautiful hilltop castles in Switzerland. Today’s castle complex is the end result of 1.000 years of construction history. It evolved from a counts’ residence to a seat of administration of Bernese bailiffs to the private home of rich American families. Once you have negotiated the draw bridge and enter the castle courtyard through the wooden gate, you will immerse yourself in 1000 years of the castle’s history. In this original setting, history becomes an adventure. Especially for children and families: In the dragon research facility small researchers can explore much in a playful manner and visit the castle’s legendary dragon Fauchi. What child does not dream of being a princess or a knight. Secret nooks and hidden stairs invite children on a journey of discovery. Here they can play, make things and dress up as what ever they like.
