Fantastic castle!!! I was here 31 years ago as a teenager, so it was really fun to go back. The drive from Lausanne was beautiful, and the entrance price is worth every cent!! We spent several hours there! Go and enjoy, you won't regret it!!

Well worth the modest admission (use your free travel card for reduction) and easy to get to from Montreux by 210 trolley bus or steamer ferry. Plenty of fascinating rooms from dungeons (Byron's "Prisoner of..") to sumptuous living rooms. One hour walk from Montreux along lovely flower fringed prom.

Excellent attraction which is very well run and organised. The walk from town to the castle along the lake is well worth it too.

We had an enjoyable afternoon visiting this lovely castle overlooking the lake. The views are beautiful on a clear day and the castle itself and the exhibits within were very interesting.

The castle presents many good photo opportunities inside the castle, around the castle exterior and on walkway to castle. Interesting tour, especially about Lord Byron.

I have visited here around 8 times since 2012 with up to 80 students and love it every time! Such a beautiful location with so much to see and explore! It can get quite busy -don't rush around as there is lots to see. Outside the entrance to the left and down the steps is a great lunch spot :)

Plan enough time and wear comfortable shoes. We wanted to stay longer to see more, but unfortunately it was raining and we had other plans. A MUST SEE

It is a bit expensive to get in, but it offers pretty good view. In fact, the view is better from outside. If you are there for pictures, you can just stay outside near the lake.

I took the time to walk all around of this castle. I also climbed to the very top of the tower where the views are breath taking.
