Side trip to Lommis and Sonnenberg Castle
Sonnenberg Castle rises in a quiet location above the Lauchetal valley near Stettfurt between Frauenfeld and Wil.
The Lords of Sonnenberg are first mentioned in documents in 1242. After the 4th fire in 1595, Jost Zollikofer from Sankt Gallen rebuilt the present castle. From 1678 to 2007 it was a governorate of the Einsiedeln monastery.
After a short visit of the beautiful inner courtyard we sit on the castle terrace and enjoy the stage beer with a magnificent view.
