We went there when it was snowing. So all was calmer and more serene than at any other time. Deer live in the gardens. It’s beautiful.

Fantastic view over Rappersvil. This place has a great view over Rappersvill and the landscape with lakes and the nearby mountains and alps. Below the castle there is a lot of old beatiful buildings.

It was worthwhile to walk up to the Rapperswil Castle. You will see old houses and architectures during your walk way. The view on the top was amazing!

A quaint place with interesting architecture and peaceful surrounding. GPR 2018 chose this place to host its major event in June this year. So much of history and heritage to learn about this place.

Small little fort with nice views. Lots of eating places around. If the weather is good, the best spots for taking pics are on top of the fort.
