the nature reserve on Lake Hallwil. Combine history, culture
and nature to create an exciting experience!

Travelling through time and space with the von Hallwyl family

Throughout its eight hundred-year history, the von Hallwyl dynasty, as part of the Argovian squirearchy, distinguished itself in a variety of ways: on confederate battlefields, at European courts, in science and politics, in trade and in the world of finance. On your tour of the castle premises you will discover medieval and post medieval areas of life divided into 11 themes. By means of an audio guide, selected family members will tell you the stories of their lives. However, the ordinary people, the farmers and subjects of the Lords of Hallwyl also have a voice.

This museum greets you in the following languages: D/F/E
