"MEDIEVAL ESTAVAYER-LE-LAC" Estavayer-le-Lac by balhannah

Estavayer-le-Lac Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 39 photos

Originally, our plan was to pass through this town, that was, until I saw the Castle.

Plans went out the window!

I actually spent quite a bit of time here, first, exploring the Castle, and then walking the medieval old town.
It really is a town that is worth stopping in, and enjoying the sights, especially the views over Lake Neuchtal.

    Dee, happy new year from cold Germany. - This town in the french speaking part of Switzerland looks indeed well worth a spontaneous stop.

      Thanks Holger, the same to you from a hot Brisbane! I'm glad we stopped for a look here.

    I like the house in the open air museum - haven´t seen anything like its roof before.

    Estavayer-Le-Lac really does look like a lovely old town that deserves some time! I?ve been through this area on the train (from Geneva to Basel) but never stopped for a closer look.

    Ha, how gret is that: the medieval toilet with coat of arms on the walls :-)) Love it! The gardens look fantastic, no wonder that you simply had to stop and look around :-) And Lacustre is something for me :-) I even could imagine to live in that house :-)
