Escorted Rail Tours to Chateau de Chillon

One of Europe's best-preserved medieval castles

The Château de Chillon rises dramatically from the waters of Lake Geneva against a backdrop of breathtaking mountain scenery. The 13th century Gothic château is built on a rocky island on the edge of Lake Geneva, connected to the shore by a wooden drawbridge. It is considered to be one of Europe's best-preserved medieval castles.

The fortified château was where the famous Swiss patriot, political activist and historian François Bonivard was imprisoned and held in chains for four years. His incarceration inspired Lord Byron to compose his famous poem 'The Prisoners of Chillon'. The Château de Chillon is now uninhabited and is preserved as a museum, with guided tours available throughout the day.
