This has been a reception room for important guests for over 700 years. You can become the master or mistress of the hall for an evening.
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.
