Chateau De Chillon Reviews & Ratings

  • Good place to spend a couple of hours off the coast. Get into the cruise, hop off at Chillon to see the history of this castle. Take the next cruise onward after 2 hours. Well maintained and easy to go around with a map provided at the entrance. A detailed tour will take up two to three hours. Beautiful castle with a history.

  • This is a very cool and interesting castle with an intriguing history. It's not he biggest, not the most grand, but it's significant. The way the water surrounds the castle makes it quite unique. The castle itself has many interesting bits. It's very worth coming. It's not long or difficult to go see. Take some pictures!

  • This castle Is amazing! Right on the water. Included in Swiss Travel Pass. We did buy the audio guide for 6 CHF which gave valuable info and led to a great self guided tour. Bus drops of and picks up right in front. Lots of stairs. Be prepared

  • Great castle to visit with children. Interesting and convenient, you can walk around on your own with audio guide. Nice views around and from inside the castle. 2 hours needed for sure. You can get there easily by train or bus.

  • everything is very interesting for me. the audio tour was very detailed and they gave videos about the history of the place. it is quite pricey but it's switzerland. the palace itself is beautiful with great views of nearby cities in the summer. you need a little bit of imagination to appreciate the design and how great the palace is.
