  • 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.
  • Great views, small castle with a beautiful garden, good playground, open farm ( kids can pet rabbits and watch all other farm animals.
  • Wonderful secret place very deficult to locate.. but peaceful
  • I highly recommend visiting this legendary castle. It's 5 CHF to enter inside the csstle. However, it's free to walk around the grounds.
