5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Very atmospheric, beautiful lighting, great ambiance and a fantastic medieval dinner. Come early to see the market, stay for the medieval candlelight dinner.

“Was great and worth going.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

If you have the time go there is money well spend. Many great photos and history out of this place. I liked there was not many people early in the morning, I guess it is not the same if it is crowded. There was only one girl to give the audio phone for the tour at the gift shop.

“Absolutely worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

An amazing job of preservation. Easily two hours can be spent on the self-guided tour. Understand it gets very, very busy in the summer months though.

“Amazing castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

A Castle on the shore of Lake Geneva. Amazing castle to visit. Take the time to visit everything. The prison is very interesting with the writing on the stones by prisoners. You will find the name o a known writer.

“A must-see place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We visited Chateau de Chillon after reading advices here in November. It is a place worths to see. It seems like a small castle; however, there are maany things to see. The given brochure at the entrance had some suggested routes for the visit. It is better to follow these routes to see everything in a shorter time. Otherwise, you may miss some places.
The watch tower has a fabolous view of Lake Geneva and Montreux. Do not miss it.
A negative point is: The castle was too cold in November. I think it is best to see it in summer. If you go in autumn or winter, wear warm enough clothes.
One ofthe best places in Montreux to see!
