Schloss Bottmingen

The impressive moated castle of Bottmingen is one of the most photographed subjects in the Basel region: a true fairytale castle!  

This historic moated castle, built in the second half of the 13th century, is located in the middle of Bottmingen and is the only moated castle still in existence in the Leimental.Following several rebuilds and an ambitious refurbishment of the interior, the building was transformed into a French-type country house in the style of Louis XIV. These days, the castle operates as a renowned restaurant, which has been awarded 15 points by Gault Millau. The castle is a very popular venue for weddings and parties, while the pretty gardens and castle ponds also draw in many visitors. The Christmas illuminations during Advent make the castle seem as though it is floating on a sea of light.
