  • The castle of Grandson does not appear on the major tours, and yet the 2nd largest castle in Switzerland has many strengths. First, it's a perfect example of the region's medieval castle, with its round towers, its high walls typical. And then inside reserve surprises - medieval weapons, monumental fireplaces, Knights Hall, jail and... old cars. A nice experience. By the way, if you visit the Castle, visit Church, a little higher in the village, beautifully restored and highlighted.

  • In the castle of Grandson everything is perfect, the wall that surrounds it, the coffee shop of the entrance where you can buy souvenirs, the gardens where the summer a medieval feast, the wrought iron entrance gate, the stairs that lead to the rooms. Here we enter in a tiny Chapel, and then in the torture chamber... really impressive what man can do.., the arms rooms, re-enactments of battles, Armors, the bedroom, then the coastal path, from where there are great views over the Lake, the room where there's a film explaining what happened past the rant of the Castle, all life is interesting. In winter goes a lovely handmade Christmas market. There is also a museum with old vehicles, cars, motorcycles and bicycles. Various activities are possible: birthdays, treasure hunts... Really not to be missed under any circumstances visit this place!

  • As far as castle visits go, this was one of the worst ones. The castle did not have an audio guide, the exhibitions inside were not cohesive, the information tables were often just in French. Do not recommend for a tourist visit
  • Lovely Swiss castle overlooking the lake. Ideal as a wedding or general party venue. Friendly and helpful staff.
  • Nicely maintained but exhibition professionalism could be higher ... too much construction ongoing
  • If you're a history fan it is a must go place in Grandson. Very rich in history, explained in a great way.
  • Partly under renovation
