Our country estate, called "Hütteguet", is situated at the entrance to a nature reserve and recreation area on the Lägern, which extends into the canton of Zurich and is ideal for horse riding, biking and hiking. Various forest sections stretch for several kilometres and offer interesting experiences and ideal recreation. The Lägerngrat with its highest point at 880 metres is walked by many hikers from the town of Baden to the medieval Regensberg.
Exciting experiences await our private clients and their families around the Hütteguet, in an area full of nature, animals, culture and history. We offer romantic hikes on foot and on horseback and games with donkeys on the riding arena. You will learn how to handle a falcon or make an alphorn sound. Joy and unforgettable experiences are the main focus.
Our Sardinian dwarf donkeys Giovanni and Aida love children and happily join in with games on the riding arena and accompanied walks, but they also have a mind of their own.
Cool forests and romantic paths are ideal for trekking on foot or with your own horse directly from the Hütteguet. Our clients are welcome to bring their own horses.
Falconer Karl Meier keeps falcons and knows a lot about falconry. Our customers learn how to handle the fascinating birds of prey from him and his falcons Lena and Timi.
Sound of the Alphorn
The fascination of the alphorn is hard to resist. With Hans Matt you can learn how to elicit the wonderful archaic sounds of this ancient Swiss instrument.
The veterinarian and animal physiotherapist Djamila Berthoud gives courses on equine health in theory and practice. You are also given the opportunity to have your horse treated physiotherapeutically.
Biodiversity is close to our hearts. Dozens of wild medicinal herbs grow on the Hütteguet. On a tour you will learn to recognise the herbs and find out what medicine has been using them for since ancient times.
The Hütteguet once belonged to Wettingen Abbey. The monks brewed their beer with the water from our spring. On a guided tour we delve into the history of this once rich and powerful monastery.
