Hallwyl castle, Seengen, Switzerland

Hallwyl castle lies at the northen end of Lake Hallwil. It has been around since 1256.
Unusual for Swiss castles, it's surrounded by a moat.
The castle complex sits on two separate islands, one man-made.
Since 1994 the castle has been owned by the canton Aargau (cantons in Switzerland are similar to states in the USA).
 This is the courtyard area of the front part of the complex.

I haven't been able to figure out if this barber, standing outside a hair salon, is male or female.
 I bet he makes great pizza.
