Rudenz Castle is a ruined castle atop a hill in the municipality of Giswil in the canton of Obwalden in Switzerland. The castle and surroundings are a Swiss heritage site of national significance.
Rudenz Castle is the easternmost of three ruined castles in Giswil. Traditionally thought to be part of a defensive line due to their proximity and that they lay in a straight line, they are now generally believed to be three separate castles built for different purposes. The westernmost, Rosenberg Castle was built by the bailiff of Murbach-Lucerne Abbey in 12th century. It lies about 2 km (1.2 mi) from Rudenz. The center castle, Hunwil Castle was completely demolished to provide stone for the parish church which was dedicated in 1635.
