Tina Turner sold the castle in Switzerland on the spot: who bought it for her weight in gold

The castle in which Tina Turner lived in Küsnacht, Switzerland, was sold a few days after her death. Chateau Algonquin, where fans flocked to pay their respects, is now owned by Swiss businesswoman, billionaire Ines Kindel Benes. The estate, which includes a four-story main building, large garden, and boathouse and is surrounded by 1,350 acres of woodland, has been home to the American singer and her husband, Erwin Bach, for the past 22 years.

The Queen of Rock’n’Roll didn’t buy it but just rented it. And now the palace has begun to change hands. The purchase price paid for the castle has not been released, but is estimated to be around $86 million. The music icon and her EMI executive husband moved there because Turner wanted direct access to Lake Zurich. Tina and Erwin married at the castle in 2013.

Now the mansion—which Turner named after his Native American ancestors, the Algonquin tribe—has been sold. This was confirmed by the Land Registry Office in Küsnacht, as explained by the Swiss media. But widower Erwin should not be forced to leave. The new owner bought the property as an investment. Kaindl-Benes is chairman of the family-owned carpentry company Swiss Krono Group in Lucerne, with a personal fortune of $988 million. However, two years ago Turner and her husband bought another property along Lake Zurich in the village of Staffa as a weekend getaway.
