  • This castle is perhaps the most attractive place in the small town and in the Zurich area. Here it is worth arriving by train is less than half an hour, or sail on a boat. Harsh walls and towers lend a medieval castle. His story begins in the 13th century. There were different historical events: sheltering members of the City Council of Zurich and created a shadow government, plotted the so-called Zurich massacre. Zaiem behind them came most squads, and the castle was besieged, burned and destroyed the city. Later settled the Swiss know. The castle is very picturesque, especially from the Lake.

  • Simply beautiful. Worth it to visit Rapperswil just for this. Go by boat, train or car from Zurich and spend the day. Walk around the lake and walk up. You'll find hidden art and deers. The views are magnificent. Good restaurants and cafes for some happiness. Recommended.
  • Beautiful castle, must see if you are around. Very nice place to visit with family and visitors. Historical place with interesting history.
  • Looks like a great place for events. It was being prepared for a wedding when I walked through. There's nothing to see otherwise though.
  • Beautiful castle with a nice museum (they often organize workshop for kids). There is amazing view on Lake Zurich and Obersee with mountains in the background.
  • Rappersvil itself is well worth visiting for the view of the lake from the top of the park on the hill.
