  • I could not visit the castle's interior (I think it is private). But the building, the garden and the view from all around justify the visit. Don't miss it if you happen to be around.

  • Impressive views of the lake and village...a day visit worth taking if you go to this area. There’s plenty around to see as well...

  • Beautiful castle in Rapperswil with a magnificent view of Lake Zurich. The grounds are very well maintained and the gardens are gorgeous. Popular for weddings.
  • A beautiful Swiss castle in Rapperswill-Jona, awesome for a little walk through the city! Also surrounded by a lot of restaurants. You shouldn't miss this view, we were able to take some nice pictures! There is also a little deer park, which is very well-kept, as well as other little fun gimmicks for children. Can only give five stars!
