Christmas at Chillon Castle

Organised as part of the Montreux-Noël Christmas events.
Fun for all the family!

Chillon is decking the halls in green and pine cones to welcome children and grown-ups alike. Entertainers, artisans and farm animals have been invited into the Castle! Stonecutters will be hard at work, with the clattering of the forge as the background rhythm to old-time stories, songs and dances. For the curious among you: cookery workshops, candlemaking or pottery classes.


- Fire show and jesters from the Abaldir company
- Medieval farm animals
- Medieval characters and craftsmen
- Musical entertainment: Chillon through the ages
- Beeswax candlemaking workshops
