If you are looking for a pleasant stroll on a weekend, consider the lovely route from Lampenberg to Wildenstein and back to Lampenberg. This relatively flat route is stroller - friendly and offers views of rolling hills, farms and the impressive Wildenstein Castle.
The Wildenstein castle dates back over 700 years and is listed as a "Swiss Site of National Significance."
The castle is only open to the public the first Sunday of the month from June through October and Mother's Day, with the next openings scheduled for:
October 3, 2021
If you are interested in booking a private tour, please contact the castle staff directly here.
The castle, however, is open for walking around and walking up to, both of which provide a nice feel for the stately grounds. If you participate in the Rundweg, take a moment to sit on the bench located behind the castle. There is a lovely story (a recording plays as you sit down) about the castle's history, that plays as you take in the views and enjoy a snack.
The hike is void of tourists and is an easy route to enjoy for a slow weekend.
