  Historic Chillon Castle
by soccergrrl

Visit and tour the castle of Chillon. We were there in July, when it gets very crowded. We arrived just as the place opened and had the whole castle almost completely to ourselves. As we were leaving, giant tour buses were arriving with loads of people! There is a wonderful self-guided tour and lots of nice photo opportunities like this one, especially if you have nice weather. Here is my suggestion: get there at opening time, tour the castle, buy a sandwich and drink from the vendors in the parking lot, and take it back to the waterfront in Montreux for a picnic lunch!

Address: On the shore of Lake Geneva.
Directions: The castle is in the Southwest part of the country, on the banks of Lake Geneva, in Montreux.
