The tour through the castle is fantastic! They take you throughout the various rooms and educate you on how people lived there hundreds of years ago. From the attic to the dungeon, there's nothing you won't see! Highly recommend!

I love antiquity and European castles in particular. While visiting friends in Geneva I had the opportunity to take a day trip to the Alps. My guide suggested we stop at Castle Chillon on the way to Grindelwald. I'm so glad we did. I'm not...More

This is an amazing tour. Although billed as a chateau, it gives you a great example of real life in a castle (not for me). Self-guided, it is a long hike and loads of stairs and totally worth it. You'll see stuff you see nowhere...More

This place is a real gem. It is my personal feeling that a visit to a landmark can be limited in that the visitor is shuttled through a few rooms with everything roped off. This venue is amazing because it feels like they give you...More

This Chateau has some fascinating ( and somewhat dark) history and well worth a visit if you are in the area. Some of the lake views from the windows are simply worth experiencing. We took a bus which is available on free with Montreux Pass....More
