Chateau de Chillon

Switzerland

We toured the Chateau de Chillon, a 13th century medieval fortress and residence for the Savoy family. The woodwork in the big halls was amazing! During the tour we had great lake views, got to see the prison, weapons, hearth cooking tools, and heard stories about tourists sitting on the 700 year old toilets for photos (none of us were able to stage such a photo while under the watchful eye of the tour guide).

After the tour, we had a lakeshore picnic before short cruise to Montreux.
