Available venues

There are three formal great halls in the castle, whose windows all look out over the marvellous view of Lake Geneva.

The Savoy family held sumptuous banquets in them, whilst the Bernese rendered justice in some of them.

Have an unforgettable experience at Chillon Castle and hire one of its splendid rooms available for dinners, receptions and concerts.

Aula Magna
In the Middle Ages the Savoys used this room as a reception, banquet or feasting hall. Here they received their vassals and dispensed justice. Called the "Aula Magna" or "Aula Magna Inferior" (large lower room) in the 13th century, it became the milling room during the Bernese period, as a mill and press had been installed. From 1839 it was given the name "Hall of Justice". The black marble columns and lakeside windows date from the 13th century. The ceiling and chimney date from the 15th century.

Castellan's Dining Hall
Restoration of this room at the start of the 20th century has given it a medieval look. Here, as on most of the castle's walls, the decor has been created using tempera from models dating from the end of the 13th century. However, the oak columns are originals ones from the 13th century. The coffered ceiling and chimney date from the 15th century. This room is in the part of the castle previouslyy used as a residence, explaining the large windows dating from the 13th century. During the Savoy period, it was used as a dining room for the constable. During the Bernese period, it was divided in two: one part was used as a kitchen and the other as as sitting room.

Domus Clericorum
In the 13th century the "Domus Clericorum" (the clerks' abode) housed the administration of the Chillon castellanyy and the bailiwick of Chablais on two floors. This building either collapsed or was demolished in the 16th century. The clerks' room on the lower floor was entirely restored in the first half of the 20th century. Between 1947 and 1948, the wall paintings were reproducted based on remnants of the 13th century decoration. Remaining decoration found in the torture room was used as a model for painting the ceiling.


The Aula Magna is the only area available during the day. Other halls and rooms are available for event set-up once castle ticket sales are closed for the day.

The interior courtyards and the exterior garden are additional possibilities as venues for before-dinner drinks.
