Schloss Rapperswil Reviews
Lovely walk along the lake edge up to the parapet and in the grounds of the castle. Roses were heavily pruned so not in flower in winter but it was a nice place to visit. more »
Schloss Rapperswil is a beautiful castle in Rapperswil that offers some picturesque views of the surroundings. It is only about an hour’s drive from Zurich. Certainly would very highly recommend... more »
Nice castle, the museum is also really nice and the lady there is so friendly! On the other hand a waitress from the restaurant was extremely rude, she just slammed the door from the restaurant on our faces even though there was nobody inside. If the restaurant was closed I would appreciated being told so, not just get the door closed at my nose. Rude Restaurant staff, really impressive place tho.
Beautiful and Historical castle, the view of the lake is wonderful also they offer wedding parties there.
