Stunning castle!! Allow 2h30 to 3h to visit it. I advise you to take the audioguide, it allows you to guide and see all the rooms, with a view of Lake Geneva and the mountains. Wonderful ! The castle is also well preserved for the time. Easily accessible by bus from the center of Montreux (line 201) or by train (possible from Geneva...) There is also a café on site: open during the day only
