I felt it was important enough to draw attention to this fact about Castle Trachselwald. I had said and thought I was correct for most of our trip since visiting Castle Trachselwald that it was also the home of people living there. Although that may have been the case at one time, it is not true today. The board that oversees the castle have hopes to turn most of it into a museum. Currently the courtyard and prison tower and the grounds are open to the public daily but the rest is locked. I am looking forward to going back one day and visiting when the whole castle is open to the public.
