Friends Schlössli Utenberg

Although the Schlössli Utenberg is not a castle at all, but an estate, this name has been established since the 1990s. We Lucerne residents are proud of this manor house from the Rococo period (1757) and feel connected to the beautiful estate, which once belonged to the powerful Schumacher family, who even called themselves Schumacher-Uttenberg. Later, the American Charles Bain Hoyt was the owner. He died in 1949 and bequeathed the estate to the city of Lucerne by contract. The city ran the traditional costume museum in the house from 1950-1994. From 1996, the Schlössli Utenberg was used as a restaurant.


Would you also like to know what happens to the house and would you like to be part of the history of Schlössli Utenberg? Would you also like to make a contribution to the culture of Lucerne and this very special place?

The initiative for the association came from some Zwetschgen. These are descendants of the seven sisters who were born and grew up on the Utenberg estate at the beginning of the 19th century, five of whom had children. With the association, these Zwetschgen want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to become a part of Utenberg history and give expression and weight to those interested. Above all, the association aims to promote culture and research around the Schlössli Utenberg.

The purpose of the association is described as follows:
