Looking just like an illustration from a book of fairy tales, Chateau de Chillon sits on the eastern end of Switzerland's largest lake. Made famous by the poet Lord Byron, who used it as a setting in one of his well-known works, the 13th-century castle ranks among the country's most visited historic monuments. For a sense of the its medieval past, take a guided tour through the courtyards, towers, dungeons, and grand halls, packed with period furniture and artwork. Although many visitors choose to take the bus or even walk here from the nearby town of Monteux, you can also reach the castle by hopping on one of the lake's many guided boat excursions. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Veytaux holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Chateau de Chillon and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

It looked so much smaller from the outside, but it proved to be quite the workout 😂 Definitely worth o visit. We walked from Montreux to the castle on the beautiful city promenade
Epic! Super epic. Worth while, super old, like 1200s or something
