    The audio tour is tremendous value for money. But the whole place is wonderfully presented.

    Reach via 201 bus from either Vevey station or from Escaliers de Gare from Montreux. Or take a cruise from Vevey/ Montreux.

    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.

    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.
