The well maintained 18th Century Kitchen Garden is the most striking feature of the Chateau. Produce from the garden is served in the small restaurant at the side of the Chateau. The courtyard is often host to performances (in English) of the plays of Shakespeare.

A great place to visit, lots to learn and a great garden. Children and teenage will learn about Swiss and European history. Highly recommend.

Loved the chateau, at one time owned by Napoleon's brother Joseph, and the museum (part of the Swiss National Museum) was very interesting and well-done. Will certainly visit again. It also has a small gift shop.

I would not call that a brunch. It's some cold cuts and salad for entree, then a spicy chicken dish for the main course. It is a shame because the chateau is such a nice place. It deserves to have a more culinary experienced staff....More

We live close to the Chateau de Prangins which houses part of the Muséé National Suisse. It 's definitely worth discovering. Apart from the permanent collection and exhibits, there are frequent temporary exhibits, such as a current exhibit on Swiss Press Photo Awards. The ground...More
