Mighty castle

High above the River Töss with an extremely broad view, the Kyburg sits on its throne and symbolises the power of those who once ruled over this region: the Kyburgers, Habsburgers and Zurchers.

Romantic location

Close to Winterthur and Zurich, yet surrounded by countryside, Kyburg is the ideal destination for a historical outing.

Fascinating museum

150 years ago, Matthäus Pfau was already opening the doors of this castle to the public, who have gazed with wonder at the castle and its exhibits ever since.

Vibrant variety

Cabbage and kale, herbs for taste and healing, old varieties of vegetable and flowering plants still grow in the Wife of the High Bailiff's Garden – just as they did in the past.
