Chillon Castle

Historic evenings at Chillon Castle

Built in the 12th century on a rocky island on Lake Geneva, near Montreux, Chillon Castle is the most visited historic site in Switzerland. Its venerable walls house fascinating collections open to the public and spaces that can be reserved for all types of prestigious events.

Who hasn’t dreamed of living in a castle? Chillon Castle, near Montreux, offers you the chance to realise this dream during a drinks party, evening event or business meeting, when you can act as the lord or lady at specially organised dinners and receptions held at this mediaeval fortress.

The main room – the Aula Magna – can be booked, during the day or evening, for events for up to 300 people (230 seated). For a small committee meeting (up to 20 people), the Salon Albert Naef creates a unique atmosphere.
