Get ready for a scenic adventure on the Buurelandweg Aargau theme trail. From the moment you arrive at Schloss Kasteln, this hike is a feast for the eyes. Stop at the tiny farm at the start of the walk, where children will enjoy the chickens and pigs before they begin their adventure.
Just below the castle, remember to pick - up the brochure, which includes the card your children will need to stamp as they pass each station. At the end of the hike, place your name and your stamped card in the box for a chance to win farm products from the region.
With nine stations and a plethora of information on agriculture including meat, fruit, vegetables and wine, the children will be entertained and learn as they go. The trail leads through stunning vineyards making this hike scenic in the summer, but we are certain it must be in its prime during the autumn months.
As with most Swiss theme trails, it is evident this trail was created with great care and love. The signposts, the activities, and all of the information is beautifully crafted. We thoroughly enjoyed this trail and hope to return in fall.
There are swings in the group of trees just past the fruit and vegetable post. The children will love this small, but sweet play area.
Good to Know:
· There are no bathrooms along the route.
· There is not drinking water along the route, so pack plenty.
· There is a grilling station.
· Free parking at the castle.
· This trail is accessible from May 1 through October 31
· Don’t forget to have the children stamp their brochure.
· Stroller- Friendly (all terrain stroller)
