Very picturesque little hamlet with cobblestone street and ancient church and cemetery. Though it’s pretty small, the atmosphere is great and people would go there for a lazy Sunday trip to the local restaurant.

Fantastic Castle to visit, the tour is done individually so one can take as long as one wants. Lots of old weapons and armory, very interesting outing for the entire family

This is a fortress, with a museum that covers a large period in time. It is not fancy, Switzerland never had royalty, so this is more of a fortress where the govenor lived. Worth a stop if you are in the area. The museum is...More
