We were based in Montreux, and it was an easy bus ride from the town. Admission is free with the Swiss Travel Pass. A medieval castle, very well-preserved. Worth a visit.

If you driving through veytaux or nearby. It is well worth the visit here. Parking can get quite full so best to get here early or late in the afternoon. You will spend about 1hr here touring the castle. You can’t miss this place.

A must when in Montreaux. Plan to spend a couple hours and it is definitely worth spending the money to do the audio tour. Take your time and enjoy each room. Wear hood walking shoes as there are cobblestone walkways and lots of narrow stairs.

Based in Montreux - a stunning city of the lake, architecture and amazing ancient locations. Chillion Castle is one of the most favourites castles I visited. In general, it was a great experience day in my entire life when I was had opportunity came here.

Nice visit with wife and small kid, worth to pay the audio guide. It take us 2.5 hours and it worth it. Nice views and historical pieces

This castle is a good example of Euroean medieval castle. The castle in itself is not that different from others, but the scenery around it makes it a must-see!

You ask the impossible. The weather is likely to be sunny and cool depending on elevation. It can also be snowy and cold. In Switzerland most mountain passes will be closed. While 0C in Zermatt, it will be 15C in Basel.

Chillon Castle in Montreux is much closer to Geneva. Check options like Rhine Falls while in Zurich. However, if you still want to visit Montreux, check the train times on Google. You will have to change trains in between... More
