Thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon here. Great for kids to learn history. The castle history is focused on the Habsburg era and local nobility. They had video screens with actors depicting the people who lived there. Very well done.

I had only one more day in Switzerland and I had to choose between the different castles in Aargau. I'm so glad I chose Wildegg! Lenzburg castle has more visitors, but from what I could gather, the visit is more targeted for kids. Wildegg has...More

Beautiful gardens, lovely small courtyard cafe, farm shop with animals grazing outside, and very interesting castle rooms make for a great day out. Mostly locals and some individual tourists, but none of the large bus groups that overpower some other Swiss destinations.
