The Hesston College Choir visited the castle on its 2014 European Tour. The choir sang under their director Bradley Kauffman in different parts and rooms of this historic place from their current concert repertoire. This took place on May 31st, just before they headed for their next concert in Langnau, where they performed in the oldest, still existing Mennonite church on earth. Their site-seeing and musical activity at Trachselwald has to be understood within the context of the new effort to make the project known throughout the U.S. in as many Mennonite Churches and Amish communities as possible. Their contribution will be included on the Trachselwald DVD delivered next month in the U.S..

The Trachselwald Castle «The Cloud of Witnesses» calendar are now on a donation basis.
