The castle at the foot of the Calanda is the highlight of Haldenstein. When the roses flower in the spring, the castle garden is a visual and olfactory feast.
Haldenstein Castle was built in the 16th century and is included in Switzerland’s inventory of art and cultural-historical protected items. The public castle gardens are one of the most beautiful attractions in the Chur region. Each year, these park-like gardens, surrounded by an impressive wall crowned with battlements, and the beauty of the blooms, bring joy to the hearts of the many visitors.
Haldenstein Castle is best explored while on a guided tour through the castle walls and the flowering rose garden. The Garden Festival in the spring and the castle opera in the summer are very popular events and have an impact extending far beyond the immediate area.
