Palace with Napoleon Museum
The palace still sparkles with its original furnishings and welcomes museum guests just like Queen Hortense’s friends.
As a visitor, you walk through the drawing rooms and think that the imperial family just stepped out of the house a moment ago. A spiral staircase leads from the tent room upstairs to the elegant private chambers of the Bonaparte family. A special highlight: At a desk dating back to the era of Napoleon, museum visitors can leave a message in the guestbook of the house.
The Arenenberg Gardens
Arenenberg’s gardening tradition reaches back more than 600 years. During the Middle Ages, patricians from Thurgau and Constance turned the property into a magnificent country manor and created a pleasure garden that was expanded during the Renaissance. During the 19th century, Queen Hortense added a sprawling landscape park around the palace.
