Spring Excursion - May 2022
Visit to the Tower of Marie-Louise von Franz close to Bollingen


«I had a great need for nature, and great love of nature as well. I always envied Jung for his Bollingen [Tower]. I had the chance to find land there. I didn’t have the courage to build a tower, because that seemed too much like an imitation, but Jung said : «You cannot build a house here, you must build a tower!» As he wanted me to do it, I built a tower as well. There I would retreat to write, to be alone, and to avoid the telephone and people. That’s the mission of an introverted person!»
- Marie-Louise von Franz, loosely translated from «Femmes autour de Jung» by Nadia Neri, 1999, p. 132.
