Chillon Castle.

Chillon Castle.

Welcome to over 1,000 years of history – in Chillon Castle on Lake Geneva.

Chillon Castle is an architectural gem, magnificently nestling between Lake Geneva and the mountains. A visit to Chillon is like a journey back in time. Each room reveals part of its history, letting your imagination transport you to the Court of Savoy or to the everyday life of the local governors of Bern. Discover the 14th century murals that are still visible in the Duke’s bedroom and the chapel and see the large collection of chests and furniture in every room. And don’t forget that Chillon was also a fortress! The landward side is flanked with towers and a wall walk.
