Uster Castle

Uster Castle reigns over the city as a landmark visible from afar. Don't hesitate to make a private tour or book one of the halls for your event.

Enjoy the view over Lake Greifensee to the Glarus Alps and the city of Uster. Uster Castle can be visited free of charge from June to October, every Sunday from 2 - 5 p.m. The team of the castle keepers offers guided tours for those who are interested.

Located on the castle hill, 496 meters above sea level, the castle was built around 1100. Its appearance significantly changed several times over time. Historical pictures still show the tower and the battlement that was removed in 1917 and replaced by the still visible crow-stepped gable.

After the castle had been privately owned for a long time, the textile manufacturer Jakob Heusser-Staub bought it in 1916. He had it restored and handed it over to the city of Uster as a foundation. A private school has used most of the premises since 1995. The knight's hall and the tower room can be rented for events. Find the required information in the Usteragenda brochure.
