  • What a location! Feel yourself in the medieval again! Also the museum was awesome. A must see and walk venue!  more »
  • If you're already in the area, this is a nice place to stop and see Roman ruins in Switzerland. It doesn't compare to ruins in Mediterranean countries but still provides a sense of what life was like....  more »
  • Went for the august festival - though it is geared for children and families, there are still a lot of interesting activities going on for adults. The glassmaking tent was great.
  • Surprisingly interesting location. One can make a small fun hike there.
