Cross the moat and come aboard our ‘castle boat’ as we set sail for a summer of fun. Get away for the day! The programme of daily events on your doorstep is sure to delight little ones and grown-ups alike, not to mention the pièce de résistance for children and teenagers: (pre-)teens will have the chance to dance like the dukes and duchesses of yesteryear to smash hits from the Middle Ages.
For English and German speakers, the FCC team has a chilled long weekend planned on the Vaud ‘Dolce Riviera’. On Sundays and Mondays there will be a guided tour available in these two languages, as well as French. You can also take a leisurely – but informative – Sunday stroll on the classic guided tour ‘Everyday life in the Middle Ages’ with a guide in period costume. On Mondays, rotate between going on the hunt for ‘Graffiti and paintings’ or the ‘Mysteries of Chillon’ and sharpening your five senses with the ‘Interactive tour’ – not a screen or gadget in sight.
You can also pick up a fun family trail, or Drako’s Tour booklet for your little ones at the ticket office – available every day in French, English and German.
You’ll find the full catalogue of 2022 summery cultural delights in French in the table below.
