“Stay healthy” - Castle Day, 4th October 2020
Organised together with the association “The Swiss Castles”

 

For the 5th Swiss Castle Day, Burgdorf Castle invites you on a voyage of discovery through the centuries on the topic of health and hygiene: What did people do in the Middle Ages to stay healthy?  How dangerous was a trip around the world one hundred years ago?  And which medicinal plants currently grow in Berthoud Castle and its surroundings? 

 

Take part – have a look at our interactive stations, meet historical characters, take a guided family tour or walk our wild plants trail.  And stay healthy!

 

A day for kids and grown-ups, with the participation of the people of Zähringen, and a wild plants specialist from skepping.
