Castle & village Werdenberg
Experience 800 years of history in the town‘s unparalleled architectural environment and in the museums of Werdenberg.
The castle from the late Middle Ages with the tower, palace, additions and courtyard was founded around 1230 by Count Rudolf I of Montfort. Today, the architectural complex comprises two museums – one in the castle and one in the town – that tell the 800-year history of the rulers and their subjects. Three of the epochs – the times of the counts, the governors of Glarus and that of the well-to-do Hilty family – are effectively displayed in the castle. The Museum Schlangenhaus, located in the town, shows how people in the Werdenberg region lived in the olden days. The bistro, a wooden structure in the castle’s courtyard, serves homemade cakes and regional snacks.
