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.

We found this castle by asking at train station info - where they were very helpful, but described it as an old pile of rocks! This is an early Keep which inspired Lord Byron to write his poem Manfred, which inspired the music by Schumann...More

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