Riggisberg is a municipality in the Bern-Mittelland administrative district in the canton of Bern in Switzerland.On January 1, 2009, the municipality of Rüti bei Riggisberg became part of the municipality of Riggisberg.HistoryRiggisberg is first mentioned in 1239 as Ricasperc. In 1270 it was mentioned as Riggesberg.The oldest trace of a settlement in the area are several Iron Age graves at Kreuzbühlhölzli. During the Roman era there was a settlement at Muriboden. During the Middle Ages the Fribourg noble family of Riggisberg was established with a seat in Riggisberg. However, the family soon lost or sold all their rights and land in the village and by the 13th century other nobles and monasteries owned parts of the village. It passed through several noble landowners until it was acquired by Petermann von Wichtrach when he married Agnes von Burgistein in 1354. In 1358 Rudolph of Neuchâtel-Nidau acquired the high court and rulership over the Herrschaft of Riggisberg that included the castle of Uf Gsteig, the village of Riggisberg, scattered farms and the courts of Riggisberg and Ruti. In 1387 the powerful Erlach family of Bern acquired the village and Herrschaft. In 1700 the Erlachs built a new and more comfortable castle near the old castle.Use our Switzerland trip planning tool to plan your trip to Riggisberg and other destinations in Switzerland.
