Drove to Chillon castle from Lausanne. Turns out that there's almost no parking close to the chateau so finally parked about 2 Kms away. In retrospect- a good thing as the walk back and forth on the lake promenade was fantastic. Took the audio guide...More

You can easily travel to the castle by paddle steamer from other lakeside cities/towns or catch the train to Montreux and bus 201(direction Villeneuve) to the castle. It's a good idea to get an audio guide, and allow plenty of time to visit as it's...More

Ferry dock is very close to station. The walk to the chateau is beautiful - a paved walk along the lake. That's how we chose to go, I highly recommend it! The ferries don't run that frequently. If you need transportation... More
