Fancy a quick drink while taking in one of the most beautiful views of Chillon?
Tucked away in the Savoy Garden, the castle ‘snack bar’ will help quench your thirst and feed those hunger pangs at the foot of the castle, a stone’s throw from Lake Geneva.
The ‘snack bar’ is open when weather conditions permitting it.
This ancient listed building is redesigned in the off-peak season to welcome the public, foster creativity in French-speaking Switzerland and provide an open access to culture. Caroline Tschumi, the artist commissioned by the Chillon Castle Foundation, is exhibiting drawings of the princesses Marguerite de Bourbon and Claudine de Brosse-Bretagne as part of our temporary exhibition. Her spontaneous and fluid touch gives birth to offbeat portraits that create a unique atmosphere, in a permanent dialogue between the past and the present. Further information is also available to help familiarise visitors with the artist’s work. The Baz’art is open every day, during castle opening hours.
Tucked away in the castle walls, the shop offers visitors a wide range of books and toys, along with souvenirs of Chillon highlights, wine of the castle and hand-crafted items made using traditional techniques.
To underscore the museum tie-in, here you will also find various books on history available in French, English and German. And for the little ones… a treasure trove of medieval figurines, castle models, princess costumes and even a full suit of armour for your little knights and warrior princesses!
The Bazaar and Shop are open every day of the year except 1 January and 25 December from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
