A good mix of architecture between a Medieval and Renaissance castle. One of the main attraction is the aquarium and all the explanation about Annecy, the lake and the province of Haute Savoy in general.

First, be aware the castle closes from noon to 2pm. The staff seemed to spend most of their time telling people to get ready to leave so they could all go on lunch break at the same time. Everyone is kicked out and even the...More

We walked up to the Chateau and because it happened to be heritage day, the entrance was free for everyone. At times there were line ups to get in but I suspect that was just because of it being free on that day. The building...More
