Arenenberg Napoleonmuseum Review

In the village of Salenstein, the Arenenberg Napoleonmuseum is housed in a magnificent villa given to the municipality by Empress Eugnie of France in homage to her husband, Napoléon III, who grew up here with his mother, Hortense, sister-in-law of Napoléon I. Today the Schloss Arenenberg serves as a museum, and lovers of decorative arts will prize its ravishing period rooms dating from the Second Empire. Outside is a glorious park studded with ancestral statues as well as a separate seminar center with a small café.
