Once upon a time a dragon lived on the hill. It was slain by two noble knights, Wolfram and Guntram, who henceforth were allowed to live on Dragon Mountain. Legend has it that this is how Lenzburg Castle, one of the most important hilltop castles in Switzerland, came to be.
From the moment you cross the drawbridge and enter the courtyard through the wooden gate you are engulfed in the castle’s 1000-year history. Nowadays, it features a variety of exhibits: a museum of life in the olden times, an exhibit about knighthood and nobility, a dragon research station, a children’s museum and a history studio.
The gardens and the castle café are perfect places to relax and enjoy.
A multifaceted programme featuring public tours, displays of old crafts and special events, such as a medieval market, give new life to the historic site. For adventure seekers there is the Castle Fox Trail – an exciting treasure hunt.
