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
