Schloss Wildegg - Museum Aargau

Surrounded today by gardens, pastures and vineyards, the castle was founded by the Habsburgs in the first half of the 13 century. Along with its domain the castle was owned by eleven generations of the Effinger dynasty. Immerse yourself in an authentic experience of historical gardening culture and comfortable living.


The Effinger dynasty and its castle

Between 1483 and 1912 Wildegg Castle was the seat of the Effinger dynasty. The family was part of the landed gentry and had been admitted to the Bernese patriciate. During this time the castle and its outbuildings were repeatedly adapted to suit the changing requirements. The prestige of the dynasty was illustrated by the spoils of war that Bernhard Effinger brought back in 1683 from fighting the Turks outside Vienna, and by Holderbank Church which contains the family vault. An audio guide introduces selected members of the family and tells their life stories.
