The Knights Hall was my favorite room in the Castle and one I want to tell you about and show you some photo's.
The room is full of wood panels and wall paintings/frescoes, depicting the history of the Castle. One of them shows the year 400 AD, the start of Gruyeres Kingdom, and another, 1099 AD, shows a battle and new family on a crest. A lot of them are a blend of fact and fiction.
The ceiling is painted too!
Last and not least, is the long table and all the beautifully carved chairs where long time ago the Knight's would have sat.

Don't Miss!
