We hiked up to the castel ruins with a lady that owns llamas. She gave us a bit of history of the castle, super interesting place. Definitely a bit tricky to get up there, so wear good shoes and be prepared to take your time....More

Loved the walk through Wilderswil up to Unspunnen Castle, very pretty. We enjoyed clambering over these ruins and if you are careful to hold on to the hand rail, it is not too dangerous (I wouldn't take a very young child though). Beatiful views as...More

It is a nice walk from town to the ruin and you can walk around it and get some good views.....but, if you want to go in and look around you should take note; wear good trainers or shoes, not sandals; the steps are irregular...More

It's a half hour trek away from Interlaken West and it's off the beaten path. A small castle in ruins, it's still got the central turret intact but the rest of it is in shambles. Enclosed in a wooded area, it looks serene and peaceful....More

These ruins were larger and in better condition than I expected. A very easy walk to the site. Only a handful of stairs... I don’t know what the babies in the other reviews are worried about. 3km from Interlaken centre. 1.5km from Wilderswil train station.

If you follow the signs from the very top of Wilderswil to Interlaken you will come across the castle halfway along your walk. It’s a small ruin castle but is worth a visit if your walking to Interlaken from Wilderswil.

Just ruins and quite dangerous. Not worth visit. Steep steps without handrails. I like ruins but not these ones.

It doesn’t close. You can go there any time. You just walk in.
