Excellent castle to visit with children. There are so many activities geared toward children. They can explore and climb and dress up and build. Before or after you can walk down/up the stairs to the Toss river and explore the trails in the Eschenburg forest....More

Not so far from Winterthur you can find this nice old castle, which is prepared for you in many ways. For kids there are many fairy tale hints or game tower with wooden toys. The excursion is not led so you can spend so much...More

Fantastic Castle to visit, the tour is done individually so one can take as long as one wants. Lots of old weapons and armory, very interesting outing for the entire family

This is a fortress, with a museum that covers a large period in time. It is not fancy, Switzerland never had royalty, so this is more of a fortress where the govenor lived. Worth a stop if you are in the area. The museum is...More

This is another castle in Switzerland but not it's best by far. The castle is accessible, you can climb to the higher points. You can explore various rooms. There are few decorations or historic areas so be prepared for some boredom unless you are terribly...More

We enjoyed visiting this castle which was not to far away from our hotel in Winterthur. The admission price was reasonable and they had a small gift shop. It was fun to walk through the castle and learn about its history.
