Experience theory live on your doorstep
Today, Kyburg Castle
tells us the story of the Middle Ages when the counts of the Kyburg, followed by the Habsburgs and the Zurich bailiffs have settled in the area. Later, in the 18th century, many cotton companies were built, operated by waterpower. The time when villages such as Wald were seen as «Manchester of Switzerland» can be experienced live at the Museum Neuthal Textil- & Industriekultur
and other locations
. Nature is varied and can be instructive be it on a hilly ridge hike with barbecue areas or along a creek with ravines and bridges and relicts. The protected area around the Greifensee has preserved an intact nature since 1960, explained and exemplified at the Silberweide nature station
. These and many other options will make your school trip an unforgettable experience – right on your doorstep.
