The small community in the Zurich Oberland is definitely worth a visit. Stroll along the beautiful lakeside surroundings and stop at Greifensee Castle. The castle complex, which dates back to the 13th century, was converted into a small chateau at the beginning of the 16th century. One of the most famous residents was the bailiff of Greifensee, the title figure of the Gottfried Keller novella of the same name. There is evidence that the area surrounding the present-day municipality of Greifensee has been settled since about 4000 BC. Four sites of former lake dwellings are known. Have fun discovering them!
