Schloss Aarburg – One Of Switzerland’s Top Architectural Monuments
Schloss Aarburg is one of Switzerland’s top architectural monuments. It was built at the beginning of the 12th century, around 1123, and later expanded into a huge fortress when the town came under Bernese rule. The imposing fortification, occupies a prime position with amazing views across the river Aare. Photographer Sebastian Andrei took these shots one Spring evening around sunset, showing how beautiful the castle and its location are.
A Former Armoury
The Old Town
The old town is located between the river and rock ledge, with most of the houses grouped around the main square. In 1840 there was a fire, and the city fortifications on the north side were never rebuilt afterwards. It is a great place to explore on foot with its narrow, windy streets. Schloss Aarburg dominates the town and is classified as a cultural asset of national importance.
