Since the 11th century, one castle or another has held court where Larochette Castle now sits. A steep walk up to the castle entrance rewards you with views over the small town and the surrounding countryside. If you have a rental car, you'll find free parking at the top of the hill. Ruined castle walls weave around the hills, many marking hidden passages and tunnels that are begging to be explored. The restored section of the castle sometimes hosts art exhibits, but its old stone halls can also be toured between art shows. A cafe with a bakery on the attraction's grounds will help refresh you after your castle tour. Using our custom trip planner, Larochette attractions like Larochette Castle can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Larochette Castle Reviews
Magnifique point de vue sur la vallée et la ville de Larochette depuis le château. Très intéressante visite des ruines du château. more »Beautiful view of the Valley and the town of Larochette from the Castle. Very interesting visit to the ruins of the Castle.
Même si le château est en ruine, il dégage de cet endroit une atmosphère romantique et un peu mystérieuse. L'accès à pied par le village est assez sportif, ça monte raide! Une halte vraiment agréable ... more »Even though the castle is in ruins, he get out of this place a romantic atmosphere and a little mysterious. Access on foot by the village is quite sporty, it goes up steep! Really nice hotel for those who enjoy the quiet and the magnificent view.
Imposing ruin that is in a good state of preservation. Sits high above the town on the edge of the forest in this beautiful area known as little Switzerland. Two of the local walks pass by the castle ... more »
This was a great experience for me because I was the only one in the castle when I went. I was able to climb the fortress walls for some good pictures. Overall, nice place
Nice place to visit. Just a small walk from the village (10min) Sit on the terrace and have a drink.
This is a see it yourself place... yours to discover. Definitely worth the hike (there is a pedestrian path from the village) and gives an interesting glimpse into the compromises of restoration vs leaving the ruins as-is.
A great place with handy illustrations of the interiors you're looking at as they were back then. No crowds, no "don't touch this, don't go there" rule, a perfect place to relax, explore and reflect. A free parking and a little birdie are included!
Visiting on a sunny day was a nice experience. Enjoyed it.
