Really a nice castle and the best was to visit it during the Medieval week end with many attractions and good spirit.

Pretty museum, there is veteran car exposition, the historical section is very nice if you spend time to understand what was the battle of Grandson about - swiss confederates against a rich French Duke.. In summer August there are medieval fests.
