First built by a city official in 1640, Haus zum Schwertgut was originally surrounded by vineyards and served as a second residence. Over the years, it was enrichened with a beautiful Baroque garden, lateral extensions were added to the core of the house, resulting  in this building's intriguing crescent shape. The unique architecture retains many features typical of Swiss and Germanic country houses, which are noted for their sturdy, yet elegant craftsmanship.

The interior was thoughtfully remodeled by private owners in the early 1980's. While the apartments respect the original character of the property, functionality and modern facilities were added to provide all the amenities of modern, urban life.
