Enchanted castle. Lovely surroundings. A real gem at the tip of Wallis. Nice to walk around and soak in the vinyards.

I was staying in Geneva and took a day trip out along the lake. Ended up in Aigle. The walk up to the castle is easy, 10-15 minutes from the train station with beautiful views of the town and surrounding mountains. The castle itself looked well used and not updated which kind of made it look more authentic (contrast to Château de Chillon which has been "restored" and looks straight out of "The Princess Bride"). It was a quiet late afternoon and I was one of 2 people visiting. I walked around the grounds and took some pics. There is a restaurant next to it that looked good, but expensive (~40F entres). I decided to look around for other options - Highly recommend Badan Vins just down the hill from the castle for a wine tasting, I rate them 5/5, but they are only open (?) Thurs and Fri evenings (1600-1900) and Sat (1000-1300).

Perhaps not as interesting as nearby Chateau Chillon, the castle in Aigle is nonetheless very impressive to see, nestled amongst vineyards and surrounded by the Alps. There are two modest museums within the castle, one celebrating the local wine industry.

This Castle is beautifully located in the heart of vineyards. Very photogenic and interesting history. Great for all ages and medium stair climbing. A smaller Castle but still most of the charm intact. About an 1 1/2 hour visit.

We were guests at an evening event at the Castle. The entertainment was such fun. The food was delicious. They even had gluten free meal, bread, salad and dessert ready for me. The walk into the castle is a difficult one with the cobblestones. I am not sure how accessible it is for strollers and wheelchairs. The bathrooms are down a few steps which may also pose difficulty for those with walking difficulties. Our evening was wonderful. Thank you for a great experience.
