Must see · Specialty Museum · Museum
Uncover the layers of history at Chateau de Nyon, a museum housed within a 13th-century castle. The elegant white castle overlooking the Canton of Vaud was first mentioned in 1272 but likely dates back to the Lords of Prangins. Having undergone multiple restorations and renovations, it remains a Swiss heritage site of national significance. In 1888 a historical museum was opened within it, now on the second and third floor. The collection contains wallpaper, furniture, and the history of Nyon starting from 1000 BCE and continuing through the 20th century. In 1947, over 700 porcelain pieces reclaimed from the 19th-century Nyon porcelain factory were added, making up the first floor.

  • Is not very big but the view is very beautiful. The surrounding area is also beautiful. After a long drive in the middle of the nature you arrive here. There are many castles in this area and it is a nice activity to go around the lake and check the view in any of them.
  • Nyon is a very lovely city that never let me down. Everytime I visit Nyon I have a great feeling because of its beautiful weather and beautiful little castle that has a wonderful view on the lake of Geneva and if you really stay longer staring at the lake from the Castle of Nyon you can even spot the fountain of Geneva from there :)
