Picnics
A small area with vending machines is at your disposal for refreshments. In the Savoy Garden there is a small food and drinks stand where you can buy drinks, ice cream and sandwiches. You can also enjoy your picnic on the beach next to the castle and even swim. There are toilets and showers available.

In the event of bad weather, we suggest the covered market in Montreux as a picnic venue.

Please do not picnic within the castle itself.

Teachers must accompany their students at all times; the children/students are totally under their responsibility.
