The Swiss Castles' Day – Attacking castles !*
The Swiss Castles' Day – Attacking castles !
Activity organised as part of the activities of the "The Swiss Castles" Association.
Chillon is under attack! Just for a day, experience what is was like to live in a besieged castle. A famous guest is coming to Chillon, the Count of Hallwyl Castle. He's a specialist in water-moated castles and will give us some precious advice on how to best defend our castle.
Wouldn't you like to come and help us?
