It’s no surprise that Chillon Castle is one of the most visited monuments in Switzerland. The architecture is so beautiful it takes you breath away, and the location between the mountains and the lake is absolutely magical!
Visiting Chillon Castle is like stepping back in time. Each room reveals yet another part of its history, as well as the daily life and habits of the court of the House of Savoy and of the Bernese Bailiffs.
Discover the 14th century murals in the Duke of Savoy’s bedchamber and in the chapel, and see the large collection of wooden chests and furniture in all the rooms. The four great reception halls, where sumptuous banquets and feasting took place in the past, will plunge you right into the life in the Middle Ages. But never forget that Chillon is a fortress. It is protected by the lake but, facing the mountain, defensive towers and the sentry walk on the ramparts served to keep enemies at bay. Many weapons are on display.
Throughout the years, this thousand-year-old citadel has inspired the imagination of writers and artists, from Rousseau to Victor Hugo, from Delacroix to Courbet. Legends galore sprung up here, including the most famous one of Bonivard, rendered immortal in the poem by Lord Byron - The Prisoner of Chillon. Viewing the pillar in the underground dungeon where he was chained up is something not to be missed.
