Swiss Castle Day

Swiss Castle Day

Oct 02, 2022
Various castles

For one day a year all across Switzerland, 25 castles and palaces are typically open to the public, with interesting programmes for all ages. Many Swiss castles are already open to the public, but this special day means that privately-owned residences or castles that are used commercially can be accessed by the general public.

The seventh Swiss Castle Day

Every year there’s a distinct theme during Swiss Castle Day, to act as a common thread that connects the numerous events happening in castles all over Switzerland. This year, the seventh year of Swiss Castle Day focuses on food. Find out what the people ate centuries ago, whether rich or poor! It's an ideal day out for families with kids.
