Biggest feauture us the polish museum that connects to the castle. There is an entrance fee to go to this museum. Castle is nice but small. Not worth going to Rapperswil just to see the castle.

This is a small castle in the town Rapperswil. It has great views of the lake because it is perched up on a hill. We visited in November but would like to return in the summer.

Yes in the main square they are pretty ok... In the docks where the boats are... they are cobbled so it might be a problem with a pram...
