Castle Chillon – my favourite by lake Geneva

This is the first attraction by Geneva lake I found on the internet as a must go and damn, I was right!

It is just magnificent

It is just magnificent – even when it is raining

A fortress, settled next to the lake and on the foot of Alps, was being built from 11th century. It has always been an inspiration for artists and writers like Victor Hugo, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, lord Byron and many others.

I fell in love with this magnificent architectural monument in a minute! ;) We went inside and walked through some more than 40 points of interest. A wine cellar, a prison, many rooms and huge fireplaces give the castle so much glory.

The castle has always have wine cellar

The battles were not for the weak

I wanted to give the castle a hug
