La Commission Technique en 1898 Lausanne, Archives cantonales vaudoises, A/1/697

Administrative Conduct

The Chillon Castle belongs to the State of Vaud, which entrusts the Fondation du Château de Chillon with the castle’s exploitation and preservation responsibilities.

Any team that is called upon to participate in the works of conservation of a historical monument is charged with respecting and transmitting a sense of continuity.

The contractor, which is the Fondation du Château de Chillon, supervises the financial allocations allotted to the preservation of the castle. Since 1889, the TECHNICAL COMMISSION has been in charge of overseeing construction works. The project manager, who is the ARCHITECT OF THE CASTLE, coordinates the work of the specialists and of the companies.

Official EXPERTS ensure that the code of ethics is respected. Representatives of the USERS control the quality and the sound management of the building’s exploitation.

After the scientific restoration of the castle by archeologist Albert Naef, the two world wars led to a severe reduction in funding for the preservation works at the Chillon Castle. The works undertaken since the 1970s seek to remedy this delay.
