In the water meadow area the trail meanders pleasantly along the Aare, followed by the climb up to the splendid Wildegg Castle. Romantic stretches of forest lead on to the seat of the Habsburg family and finally to their memorial site, the Königsfelden Monastery.
From the charming old town, the trail leads to the Aare and past idyllic water meadows with sandbanks. Surrounded by magnificent flora and fauna, the observant walker might even see beavers busy at work.

The wonderful Wildegg Castle offers an impressive sight during the actual climb. On reaching the top there are captivating baroque gardens and exciting exhibitions to enjoy. After passing through part of the forest once self-administered by the Habsburg, the Habsburg family castle towers over the village of the same name.

The trail then leads down into the historic old town of Brugg. It's worth making a small detour here to see the nearby former Königsfelden Monastery. Its filigree glazed windows reflect its importance to the Habsburgs as their memorial site.
