This 1000-years castle is really unique and worth visiting if you are in the area. They provide a very good audio guide in various languages for 6 CHF per person, so for a family of 3 you will pay 18 franks. However, you can buy...More

Looks small from outside but plenty of rooms/places to explore and you might get lost :) We are on Swiss Travel Pass, so, the entrance is free. A 2km walking distance from our hotel but worth it. Plenty of views for photo taking and learned...More

We took the train from Lausanne, and then the bus to the Chateau. Fairly easy. It is a beautiful place and was very interesting to wander through and see how they lived. I particularly liked the latrine which went straight into the lake. Definitely worth...More
