Nine of the Swiss Castles are now just a mouse click away. The virtual tour on the internet is free of charge and offers a chance to compare castles. The 360° Swiss Heritage project by the Society for Swiss Art History invites you to be enchanted by the beauty of Switzerland's cultural assets.
A real excursion - with birdsong - from the comfort of your own home: The Society for Swiss Art History invites you to discover nine Swiss Castles on your own 360° tours and compare them with each other. Under the web address www.360-swiss-heritage.ch, the castles of Burgdorf, Hallwyl, Wildegg and Romont as well as the Stockalper Castle in Brig can now be visited virtually free of charge and as often as desired, and can be explored both inside and out. The castles of Spiez, Waldegg, Werdenberg and Zug Castle have been included for some time. The individual visit in a 360° panorama offers the viewer a unique, immersive experience that is completely new in the world of cultural heritage. In 2019, GSK had developed an app called 360° Swiss Heritage. This app was adapted to virtual reality glasses and is in use in various castles as well as in several tourist offices in Switzerland. During the Swiss lockdown, GSK made the castle explorations, which were previously only possible with VR glasses, freely accessible to everyone on the internet. The 360° Swiss Heritage project is technically implemented by DNA Studio from Bulle. Other castles from all parts of the country are to follow.
Swiss castles are unique. They sit proudly on hills, are situated on beautiful lakes or as landmarks in the middle of our cities. They reveal many secrets and invite us to experience our own history at first hand. Swiss castles are original sites and thus genuine witnesses of times long past. So get out into the fresh air: visit the towers, knights' halls, torture chambers or the beautifully landscaped gardens of our diverse Swiss castles. Let yourself be enchanted by their ambience and be transported into a completely different world. Take your time, because there is much to discover. A castle is always worth a visit.
