Unspunnen Castle - Review

Continuing the castle trail of Interlaken is this 12th century ruin. It changed hands multiple times during its history and played a prominent role in local conflicts. Abandoned in the 18th century the castle eventually fell to disrepair. But it is not entirely forgotten. Once every dozen or so years, the Unspunnen fest festival, which is a series of Swiss traditional sporting events, is held in the fields right below the castle. This festival has happened regularly since at least the 12th century. The castle's location is rather dramatic. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Interlaken itinerary 2 days.

Unspunnen Castle, Interlaken Reviews

  • It is fun to look out over the Bödeli from here and imagine I’m guarding the castle. Fun to walk all around.

  • A small 'castle' with a tower that you can climb that offer some good views to the immediate area around. Nice to explore the surrounding forest and it is not visited by many tourists.

  • It is what it is. A small castle ruin. You can walk to the top of the ruin in a couple of minutes. There's an information board about it's history which is interesting and it has some good views. It's a 5 minute drive from Interlaken central and a 15 minute activity if you're in the area.

  • Nice walk and view and free. If in the area, worth a small detour, otherwise not

  • Small ruins of the castle to explore, the view would have been better if the weather is clear
