Visit the famous Chillon Castle in Switzerland

Traveling along the picturesque coast of Lake Geneva, it is definitely worth visiting the stunning medieval structure, which is located near the cozy resort town of Montreux. Chillon Castle is one of the main attractions of Switzerland, hiding historical facts of different eras, wealth, and legends. After the release of Lord Byron's poem "The Prisoner of Chillon", this amazing place became especially popular. Now the entire territory of the castle has become a museum that gives an idea of the medieval life of the country and the history of Chillon.

Chillon Castle Interior

Inside the castle, you will see many rooms and the largest collection of medieval chests in Europe! Visitors can also walk through the four main halls: Ceremonial, Coat of Arms, Military, and Guest. In addition, as in other Swiss castles, Chillon produces its own wine from nearby located vineyards. Castle wine is called "Clos de Chillon" and can be bought only in this place, so if you're looking for a unique souvenir, this is exactly what you need.

If you are interested in history or just want to enjoy the breathtaking nature, don't forget to add Chillon Castle to your Montreux itinerary, as there is truly a lot to discover!
