The Roggwiler Weg
The newly created walking trail through the town was opened on the occasion of the 1150-year celebrations in Roggwil in September 2004. The various information plaques along the way tell you everything of interest about the history, natural history and geography of Roggwil.
We hope you have an interesting walk and a lot of fun.
Around the year 1200 the Bishop of Konstanz built a fortified tower in Roggwil. With this fortification he safeguarded his interests against the spreading influence of the monastery of St Gallen. Over the course of the centuries the tower was extended and it became the property of the St Gallen monastery. Since the 17th century, the building has presented itself as a small Baroque country castle. At the time of the dissolution of the monasteries, the castle was sold. In the course of many changes of ownership, the property fell into disrepair. From 1800 to 1968 the castle housed the village cheesemakers.
The historical protection trust of the canton of Thurgau took over the castle in 1976 for a symbolic payment of one Franc, and renovated it completely. Since 1978 the property belongs to the Stiftung Schloss Roggwil (Roggwil Castle Foundation).
Today the castle serves as a place for social and cultural events and offers a stylish backdrop for family celebrations and conferences.
