Lenzburg is a small town in Switzerland with nearly 10’000 inhabitants. It is located 20 minutes by train from Zurich main station and about 40 minutes from Zurich airport. At the foot of its medieval centre lies a rounded hill with the Lenzburg Castle on top at 504 meters above sea level.
Not only counts and dukes used to call Lenzburg Castle their home, also a German poet and an American adventurer once lived at this historically significant site. The castle has always been of great relevance to the region and lived through many political uprisings dated as far back as to the 12th century. In 1986, the castle was carefully renovated and finally opened to the public. Now, the Knight’s Hall, an impressive courtyard and enticing gardens are awaiting us for the first PSHA Workshop.
