Ruine Gesslerburg reviews
Off the beaten track and well worth a visit. 10th Century old castle. Gives great views of Lake Luzern and Kussnacht.

Old castle ruin at base of the Rigi, steep uphill walk to small castle of national historic significance and could be combined with Hohlegasse where William Tell shot Gessler the sheriff.

Nice ruins with a great view. BBQ pits nearby. Part of hike trajectory. Nice restaurant Alpenhof nearby. 🔟 Minutes walk. Worth a visit. Over 1000 years old
We stopped by on the weekday, so we we're the only people. View is beautiful. Nice place. I didn't found the parking, it either needs to be better indicated or doesn't exist.
Offers great 365 degree views over Lake of Lucerne, Kuessnacht, Lake of Zug and Rigi. Several nice grill areas with benches. The railings along the castle walls are very adventurous and definitely nothing for smaller kids (could easily fall off). Parental supervision is STRONGLY advised.
Excellent ruin for (careful) kids, can climb all over it. Just watch the entrance when arriving by car, the official parking is up the road to the left of the house and not the small dirt road on the right (which leads to a private property). Its several minutes walk up the hill from the car park to get to the ruin.
Wonderful hidden gem in Küssnacht. Previous inhabitants include Ritter Hartmann - the son-in-law of Zurich's Rudolf Brun and the nobile family of Silenen. Legend has it that Tell's archenemy Gessler resided here thus giving the ruins their current name. Best to walk around and explore. Dangerous when wet and not pram friendly but otherwise fantastic with view of lake and Pilatus
