Rapperswil Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 304 photos

When talking about this town, the first impression is the beautiful castle. Though belongs to the Kanton of St. Gallen, Rapperswil is a near escape from Zürich which takes only about 23 minutes from the railway mainstation. Known as one of the most beautiful and charming small cities in the country. A hospitable and charming city, that pleased to share its beauty to all visitors. Its cultural assets have been handed down through the centuries and are carefully maintained and cared for. Many of the city's sights are confined to a small area and can easily be seen while strolling through the old part of town.

The old Town Square is situated above the Market Square. From there you could enjoy the view of the impressive castle's clock tower.

Rapperswil also housed the country's national circus Knie and Zoo. Also locally known to its garden of roses
