Heidegg Castle

For many centuries this feudal building was home to the noble Heidegg family - whereas today it's a living museum in which you learn stories and customs of aristocratic families,  take a stroll with the spirit of the past in the large park with its beautiful rose garden.

The castle overlooks a vineyard and has a commanding view over the Baldeggersee and the alps. At first it doesn't really appear to be a very special castle, but when you enter the grounds you begin the realize there is much more than just a Museum to visit.

Tucked behind the castle is a small passageway that leads to a wonderful rose garden. Open from April till October the garden is the most beautiful retreat, that commands a view over the vineyards below. When the roses are in full bloom the colors and perfumes that surround only help to make the place a small paradise. The best time to visit is in June when all the flower are in bloom.

Getting to the castle is worth the trouble since it's not close to any of the highways. There's plenty of parking and if you visit during the week you have the place all to yourself..
