25th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS
For many years, Schloss Kyburg lay like Sleeping Beauty, deep in sleep. The exhibition it contained dated
from the 1920s and 1930s. In 1989, the President of the Municipal Council suggested to Jakob Stucki (who was Finance Director at that time) that he should put a working group together to breathe new life into the castle. In 1992, 25 years ago, this working group founded the Verein Museum Schloss Kyburg
society, with the aim of creating a new exhibition in Schloss Kyburg and taking over its management.
In 2017, we marked our 25th anniversary with two days of celebrations. At the official ceremony in
the Kyburg church, the Mayors of Winterthur and Illnau-Effretikon and the President of the Cantonal Council all spoke of their attachment to Kyburg and its significance to the community. On the Sunday, Kyburg offered games and archery, a theatrical production and music for all.
