Switzerland Panormaic

This is the real deal. A full sized castle built on a rock out-cropping on the shores of Lake Geneva. If you are vacationing in Montreux, you should definitely visit this site if you have any interest in architecture at all. If you are in good health, it is very walkable from downtown Montreux, and there is a wide, paved path the whole way.

Look at the size of those fireplaces. Very impressive. There is also a creepy dungeon type of section. For the whole story and details, go to the official Castle Chillon site. There is a very good view of the city of Montreux from the castle's tower room (bottom panoramic).
