  • Tour without a guide through the courtyard and the Castle. Very suitable for children and grandchildren.

  • The Kyburg offers to discover exciting for all ages! We offer this much, to give children the background. We were already so often there, and still a new visit worthwhile. All around there are beautiful, diverse hiking opportunities. Also the directions with the S-26 at Sennhof-Kyburg and walk along the Töss River followed by a climb to the castle is very nice!

  • The website makes it seem like this site is accessible for disabled people. I learned that is not the case. Even the stone walkway to get up to the castle is extremely hazardous for wheelchairs, walkers and knee walkers (what I was using). When I went to purchase my ticket the lady said nothing about how inaccessible it actually is and didn't offer me a discounted ticket based on the fact that I could only see 3 rooms (which I didn't learn until I had already bought my ticket and gone inside). To top it off many exhibits were closed which the website didn't indicate. When we wandered back outside to try to find an accessible way around the ticket lady saw us wandering and offered a guide book of the castle for free even though the store was selling it for a decent price. She told us we could have it because the inside of the castle is "empty." I think she felt bad that she sold us tickets to a half-closed attraction and didn't warn me that I wouldn't be able to experience 95% of the castle before I bought tickets. We spent over an hour commuting to this attraction and an hour back. We spent about 20 minutes there and left extremely disappointed and frustrated. We feel cheated. The least they could do is clarify that this is not at all an accessible attraction. I wouldn't have wasted my time or money had I known.
  • Super nice Castle! Torture chamber was so awesome. It is open just on summer.
  • Are you interested in knowing more are the history of Zürich Oberland, visiting a castle or going where most English speaking tourist do not go? Then visit Schloss Kyburg. If A self guided tour lasts for about 1 hour to 1.5 hours. It is nice hike for young families. Park at the base the castle walk 10 minutes to the entrance door. Restrooms are inside. At the base of castle there are Sunday afternoon restaurants.
  • It looks small but there's a lot of stuff to see. Love this place
  • A travel in the past in an incredible castle. The way across the building is clear, lots of historical explanations and so many attractive simple activity for children ! Moreover the entrance ticket is really cheap.
