easily reached from Basel or Zurich, Wildegg offers furnished rooms from the 15th through the 19th centuries. The variety and beauty of the many wood-burning stoves for heating, covered in decorated tiles, are remarkable. Weapons including booty from the defeat of Suleiman the Magnificent before...More
