This castle is the most visited historical monument in Switzerland. There is an entrance fee with reduced rates for over 60’s and children. There are 42 rooms to explore and with Covid, there is a one-way system well marked with yellow arrows. You get given a pamphlet and you can pay to have the audio guide. Very interesting and very well maintained. There is also a shop on site. It is close to the station and bus stop. Definitely a place to visit if in Switzerland.

Chillon Castle is an island castle perched on the banks of Lake Geneva. The water castle is the most visited historic building in Switzerland. Ideally located with breath-taking views of the surrounding Alps, the castle is set amidst a lovely picturesque background. On the inside I find that it is not so interesting, perhaps I am not much of a castle enthusiast. There is a charge of CHF12.50 entrance fees.

I enjoyed the visit to this medieval castle very much. It is very well maintained. We got a map with descriptions from the ticket office and it was very helpful in explaining the different parts of the castle. The routes in the castle were clearly marked, so it was easy to navigate. The room with different cupboards was interesting too. You will need around 1.5-2 hours to fully appreciate this castle.

Was staying in Montreux and walked here along the lakeside. It's a decent walk but it's worth it. Fascinating and informative and well worth the visit

We decided to come here as it looked beautiful in pictures. When we got here it didn’t disappoint, it was like a postcard . It was Christmas time so there were markets all around the castle which really put us into the Christmas spirit. Highly recommend
