Up and down Aargau
The neighbor canton of Aargau has some nice and well conserved cities; in February and March we visited three of these: Bremgarten, Laufenburg and Boniswil(Halwyl Castle).
Bremgarten is quickly reachable from Zürich within only 40′ (with one change in Dietikon)
We visited it just before the carnival:
Flying scarecrows took over the city:
River Reuss + old buildings = perfect harmony :).
In Laufenburg I used to go 3 years ago to visit … a dentist. Here we are again but this time as tourists :).
The Rhein divide the german and the swiss part of Laufenburg.
Boniswil itself is not too spectacular but the Hallwyl castle, placed within 30′ of a nice walk made us to visit it. Unfortunately the public visits inside the castle will start only in April :(.
But no worries, we continued along Hallwil Lake and discovered other landmarks :).
