Rapperswil lies directly on the shore at the upper end of Lake Zurich, overlooked by its imposing medieval castle. The picturesque town is renowned for its numerous fragrant rose gardens. From Zurich, Rapperswil is just a 35-minute train ride away. The Town of Roses is also connected to Pfäffikon on the opposite side of the lake via a dam.
The footpath along the wooden footbridge across the lake is particularly impressive. A great walk to clear your head after a meeting and free it up for new, creative ideas.
Groups of up to 300 persons can meet and celebrate in feudal style within the historic walls of Rapperswil Castle. From summer 2022, the castle will undergo renovation lasting two years, after which it will once again shine in new splendor.
