  • We thought at least to find a minimum of the history of the Castle, which could have been relevant especially during this visit (purpose of construction, date etc...). We have had the right to a few panels in different buildings. Unfortunately, despite the restoration of this building majestic, it is only the exhibition of modern art that are of no interest to me. If we want to see modern art we're going in the appropriate Museum. There is also a museum on fishing and the protection of the Annecy Lake, which would have more place on the Lake and not in the middle of the Castle. In conclusion, do fill the rooms with things without interest for the price of €5.20 per person, the pill hard to pass. , and it spoils the image of the Castle.

  • The castle is located at the highest point of the old town. It is well maintained and from here it is possible to admire a beautiful view of the city and Lake. Inside there is a Museum, but does not allow you to fully admire the interiors of the Castle.

  • We really went for a nice Château visit and were not expecting all the rooms to be filled with art exhibits. Well not all. Some rooms are dedicated to furniture of the time however it is all squashed ...  read more »
  • This is a crazy museum visit more than a castle visit. You do see plenty of the castle in the process, but it's an odd heavily-modified castle (13-1800's) and hence is weird and inconsistent, rather than a classic medieval or fairytale castle. The museum's odd and rambling - castle and local history, very old documents and wax seals and locks, old furniture and tools and weapons, old art of the local area, an exhibition of castle architecture drawings, some sculpture, and then... a contemporary art gallery over several levels, which at the time of our visit had an exhibition of animators' drawings (we narrowly missed the Annecy animation festival) and various modern sculpture/installation pieces, in the incongruous castle tower setting. Finally, there is a separate (but included-in-ticket) museum building of local ecosystems (complete with aquarium), fishing/hunting, info on the lake and agricultural history. It's all worth a visit if you're in Annecy and have time - allow 3hrs to see it all - but nearby Montrottier is more of a typical castle.
  • Somewhat hidden from the crowded part of the village lays this beautiful chateau on top of a little hill.
  • i thought it is all about the castle, but it turned out ,as it is called, it is a museum in the castle. it display some artworks and do a campaign as well, . on top of that, there is an aquarium in the castle. last but at least, it has a great view of anncey
  • Beautiful place but doesn't worth to get inside
  • Deplorable need to pay to return only to the Court and have an overview of the city. Annecy it is the law of money. A family that can't afford the entrance to his family may not even enter the Court for several years already! superb. Thank you
