LENZBURG CASTLE – CASTLE OF KNIGHTS AND DRAGONS
Towering on a cliff above the eponymous town Lenzburg Castle is one of the most beautiful hilltop castles in Switzerland. The castle complex still standing today was built over a period of approximately 900 years. During this time it served as a residence of counts and bailiffs from Bern as well as being the private home of a wealthy American family. Visitors crossing the drawbridge and entering the courtyard through the castle's wooden gate immerse themselves in its 1000-year long history.
