More Castles in Switzerland

 

Some more castles in Switzerland are: -

Stockalper's Castle

The Stockalper's Castle in Brig is one of the finest castles you can come across during your Switzerland tour. Also known as the Stockalper Schloss, it was built between 1658 and 1678 by Kaspar Jodok von Stockalper. As one of the most important descendants of an old family, he was a man of great talents. After he built the castle, Kaspar Jodok put it under the protection of the Three Wise Men and called the towers Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar. Complete with an outstanding baroque garden with rosaries, vineyards and dancing fountains, the Stockalper's Castle of today is indeed a sight to behold.



Lenzburg (Schweizer Mittelland) Castle Lenzburg


The castle of Lenzburg is situated on top of a hill between Aarau and Baden. The oldest part of the Lenzburg Castle consists of a spacious High Medieval complex, which was the seat of the ruling Counts of Lenzburg. The castle later passed on to the Kyburg dynasty and subsequently of the Counts of Habsburg. Around 1415, the Lenzburg Castle became a Bernese bailiff's residence as Lenzburg fell to a Bernese seize.
Today, the castle houses the famed museum Canton Aargau besides a cultural and conference center.

The Hünegg Hilterfingen castle is set in a beautiful park near Lake Thun in Switzerland. It was commissioned by Baron von Parpart-von Bonstetten and built during 1861 to 1863. Since the Hünegg Hilterfingen was built around the turn of the century, it is partly modern in its appearance and architecture. The castle also houses a museum that displays interiors from the 2nd half of the 19th century (historicism movement and Jugendstil).

Château de Grandson (Lake Geneva Region)

This medieval fortress was built somewhere during the 11th and 14th century. One of the most well maintained relics of Switzerland's glorious past, the Château de Grandson is a must visit site. Besides, the castle also boasts of a permanent exhibition that displays old weapons and details of the famous battle of Grandson in 1476. A popular automobile museum is another attraction that draws many. Greta Garbo's Rolls Royce is one of the most prized possessions displayed by the museum.

Castelgrande Bellinzona (Ticino)

Bellinzona was once the gateway to the Alps from the south and Italy from the north. As the present capital of Canton Ticino, Bellinzona is a bustling city that prides itself in its rich heritage. An important cultural crossroad between the Latin and Teutonic world, Bellinzona is indeed a charming place to visit. Everything about the place reflects an old worldly charm that is hard to ignore. Three majestic castles dating back to the Middle Ages depict Bellinzona's rich history at its best. They are the Castelgrande, Castello di Montebello and the Castello di Sasso Corbaro.
