Sissach

Sissach nestles between two forested hills in the densely populated Ergolztal valley. The town combines an urban character with rural surroundings in the best possible way.
Sissach, 5 km to the east of Liestal experienced an economic boom as early as the mid-19th century with the construction of the railway and two factories producing silk ribbon. Today, numerous service, trade and industrial businesses provide attractive employment options, motorway and railway links are optimal and the population has grown to over 6000.

The surrounding forests and cultivated land offer plenty of space for recreation, hiking is particularly worthwhile when the cherry trees are in bloom. Sissacherflue, the local mountain, is a popular excursion destination, its 40 m-high chalk walls visible from afar. A lovely hiking path leads to a mountain tavern and vantage point at 701 m altitude, from where views sweep over the upper Baselbiet area and on clear days as far as the snow-covered summits of the Alps.

Sissach also has several cultural-historic sightseeing attractions in store for visitors. Ebenrain Castle, built in 1774/75, rates as one of the most important late-baroque country mansions in north-west Switzerland and provides a venue for art exhibitions and concerts. The Executioners’ Museum (Henkermuseum) displays an extensive collection of original devices from the darker face of justice. The Cheesmeyer department store, a listed building with its decorative timber framework is a well preserved example of early 20th century department store architecture.
