Time Out says

The stunning Chateau Chillon is located on the shores of Lake Geneva

Explore one of Switzerland's top historic tourist attractions, which inspired the likes of Lord Byron, Rousseau, Delacroix and Courbet. Located on Lake Geneva, the castle features architectural styles including Gothic vaulted chapels, Medieval dungeons, sumptuous Savoy-period bedrooms and Renaissance banqueting halls. The chateau also boasts its own private beach and produces the eponymous Clos de Chillon white wine that’s available in the castle gift shop, naturally. 

There are plenty of ways to discover the castle: explore at your own pace with a map or audioguide, let an official tour guide show the way (you can even sip your way through an official wine tour) or if you’re on holiday with the kids, follow the family trail, which includes a special itinerary for children. Whichever method you choose, you’re sure to be wowed by the magnificent architecture.
