Bellinzona at night

Our train is stopping in Bellinzona at 00:10(midnight) and we will be there for 3 hours. Is there

anyway we can get to one of the castles and walk around the outside? (I'm assuming the inside will be closed up!) Can we walk to the elevator..and is the elevator running at this hr.?

I looked on the website www.bellinzonaturismo.ch and it looks to me like the elevator stops at 10pm year round.

Not sure how late they keep the lights on. I was there for a day trip last September so did not see them illuminated. Looks pretty from the website pictures though.

It's a shame you will not be there during the day. Bellinzona is a much nicer town than I had expected!

Have fun on your trip.

Sorry NDQ but I gave you the wrong information regarding the closing times for the castles. I read the info to fast. They are open until 10pm on Tuesday only. The other days they close between 5-7pm.

What train are you on that arrives at 00.10?

If it is an overnight I would be wary of wondering too far as these trains run to a 'flexible' timetable.
