Nuit de l'Epouvante 2018 Le combat de Carnaval et Carême Brueghel

Scary Night at the Castle

Veytaux - Culture et patrimoine

A night to remember centred on a fantasy world, Scary Night takes inspiration from the mysterious aura surrounding the castle and medieval legends.
Riddles and scavenger hunts are the themes of this year’s gathering, when visitors come in costume to discover the castle by night, in the light of old-time torches and mappings on the castle.

There will be lots of surprises in store at the brightly lit castle…

Yikes! The castle is in crisis! The Duke of Savoy has been murdered. Time to investigate and unmask the culprit! Who had it in for him and why…? Poison, weapons and potential accomplices will point you in the right direction. Let the games begin!

Can you outwit wicked characters with their enticing charms and suspicious concoctions? Will you be tempted by their glistening treasure?!

Cherry on the cake: immortalise your scary disguise, make-up and funny faces in a giant mirror!
