    The castle Lenzburg above the old town of Lenzburg in the Swiss canton of Aargau is one of the oldest and most important high altitude castles in Switzerland. The facility stands on the 504 meter high Schlossberg, a nearly circular Molasse hill, which rises about a hundred meters above the level, but only has a diameter of about 250 meters. The oldest parts date from the 11th century, when the Counts of Lenzburg had their ancestral home built. Thereafter, the castle was in the possession of the Staufer, Kyburger and Habsburgs, served for over 350 years as the seat of the Berne governors and then came into private possession. In 1956, the widow of polar explorer Lincoln Ellsworth sold the castle to the canton of Aargau. Since 1987, the castle houses the Historical Museum of the Canton of Aargau (since 2007 Museum Aargau).

    WELCOME TO ONE OF THE OLDEST AND MOST IMPORTANT HEIGHTS OF SWITZERLAND
    Not only counts, dukes and bailiffs lived since the 12th century, but also a German poet, an English nobleman and an American adventurer at Lenzburg Castle. Again and again the waves of great political events and history have hit its walls. In 1986 the castle was extensively restored and has since been open to the public. Today Schloss Lenzburg offers a varied program and invites you to embark on a cultural journey through time.
