    Right on the shore of Lake Geneva in Montreux. Beautiful architecture and picture perfect setting. The blue water of the lake in the backdrop makes for a great photograph.

    Make sure that you spend at least a couple of hours exploring the chateau! Also, take a postcard-isque photograph of the castle with the mountains in the backdrop if you walk right to the castle.

    Chillon Castle or Château de Chillon is an architectural jewel located in the most beautiful setting imaginable - on the shores of Lake Geneva, right at the foot of Switzerland's Alps! Bring a camera!

    Bellissimo castello sul lago di Ginevra. Vale la pena una passeggiata e una visita all'interno. A soli 3 km da Montreux.

    Pevnost ze 13. století, kterou proslavil lord Byron, leží na břehu Ženevského jezera (u hradu je celkem příjemné koupání). Prohlídka se vyplatí a mají i letáčky v čj. Vydejte se také na promenádu. Read more

    The castle is beautiful and the views are scenic. However, it does get very cold, even in the spring. Make sure that you bring a warm coat and even gloves.

    A medieval castle on the shores of Lake Geneva. The iPod audio guide is worth getting and if you’re up for climbing a few hundred stairs, the highest tower provides excellent photo opportunities. Read more
