Schloss Burgdorf

From Heimiswil to Burgdorf it is a short train ride. We spent the morning touring the 800+ year old Burgdorf Castle. Although the name "Burgdorf" is literally "fortress village," today Burgdorf is the main city of the Emmental region. We spent 2 entertaining and instructive hours on the self-guided tour. Definitely worth the time.

A fascinating aspect of this museum is that children have many hands-on experiences they can do. In the room that shows a bit about the history of musical instruments, there is a box with small cymbals and bells even small children can reach into and make some noise!

Reminds me of teaching at the university :) Maybe just a little different :)
