Lenzburg Castle (German: Schloss Lenzburg) is a castle located above the old part of the town of Lenzburg in the Canton of Aargau, Switzerland. It ranks among the oldest and most important of Switzerland. The castle stands on the almost circular castle hill (altitude: 504 m), which rises approximately 100 m (330 ft) over the surrounding plain but is only about 250 m (820 ft) in diameter. The oldest parts of the castle date to the 11th century, when the Counts of Lenzburg built it as their seat. The castle, its historical museum and the castle hill with its Neolithic burial grounds are listed as heritage sites of national significance.

  • Lenzburg castle was a short drive from Zurich. The castle was interesting, but not as interesting as some of the other castles we saw on this trip. A small restaurant is available on site and of course, paid parking everywhere you go in Switzerland.
  • The walk and garden areal are very nice. I would recommend the walk around and visit the enclose garden. Beautiful view from the walls. The museum's would be great for children. For adults who visited castles in France or in England the exhibition would be not so existing as there are not so many objects and a lot of info-porters around the rooms. Also the cafe-shop is for my opinion poor - self-service and plain coffee for 4F is not good
