We had beautiful weather. And early spring seems to be the best time to go. Will definitely go back and see what does it look like in other seasons. But spring blossoms and flowers made it look really special. We didn't go inside the castle....More

I had only one more day in Switzerland and I had to choose between the different castles in Aargau. I'm so glad I chose Wildegg! Lenzburg castle has more visitors, but from what I could gather, the visit is more targeted for kids. Wildegg has...More

It was difficult to get there because we don't have a car and had to walk UPHILL from the train station. But it was totally worth it because the views are stunning and the castle itself was a worthwhile destination. The admission was also free...More

Built in the early 13th century on a hilly outcrop, this ancient structure is beautifully maintained and furnished to the hilt with antique furniture from the elapsed centuries. Within the castle, everything is freely accessible, only very few rooms are partially roped off. Take your...More

Beautiful gardens, lovely small courtyard cafe, farm shop with animals grazing outside, and very interesting castle rooms make for a great day out. Mostly locals and some individual tourists, but none of the large bus groups that overpower some other Swiss destinations.

A nice way of going back in history. Went already 2 times and visited both inside and garden,which is also my recommendation - garden itself looks nice but the inside was "the cherry on top"

It was hot. The car park involves a 200 metre walk uphill and I wasn't sure I needed to engage with Schloss Wildegg. I'm so glad I did! It is a marvellous place to visit. From the shop/ticket desk you are ushered into a room...More
