  • We always come gladly to the Schloss Meggenhorn for a short walk. The beautiful park with good views invites you to linger. The adjacent versatile playground is interesting for families with small children.

  • We found the Castle at random, sailing on Lake Lucerne. We thought it was still of beautiful Lucerne. European cities are so adorable and small. Very beautiful and preserved.

  • It's just been a nice experience to go there. The scenery is beautiful. The castle is very sweet, but unfortunately very small. Man should have more room as they are. Very bad. I find but adequate for 5.-per person.

  • A beautiful castle set in well cared for gardens next to the lake. Take picnic and try the wine produced on the grounds 😋
  • I visited here quite often when I lived in Switzerland. It's not too far from Luzern Bahnhof, you can take bus or car within 15 -30'. It has nice garden inside, beautiful castle,crystal clear lake' water and wonderful grapes fields around. In summer you can go swimming in the lake behind the hills. The most important thing is this place not too touristic
  • Nice easy hike. And great view.
  • Nice castle, not very from Luzern station. The garden outside the castle is really nice. About 10mins walk from nearest bus stop.
  • Castle Meggenhorn exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful castle with many great panoramic viewpoints where you can see the pretty city of Lucerne, Lake Lucerne and its surroundings. There were no other tourists and the building was closed when we visited. It felt like we had the place to ourselves. Our off the beaten path visit was amazing.
