Very nice and pontoresque castle with great views of the whole city and the other castle just infront. Its worth efforts of climbing that much stairs. When we visited the main entrance was closed so we are not sure if there is the chance to...More

Fantastic views from the vantage point offered by the Chateau. Very kind guide offered water for our very hot and thirsty dog. It is a climb.

The views are spectacular! But it is quite a hike to the top! Not for the wary! Once you get to the top you are rewarded with vast views of the area. Little quantity sandwich place and bar at the base. Definitely worth the trip!

We drove all over Sion to find different perspectives to view this site from across the city. It's worth it.

It was beautiful. But it doesn't have anything, just some walls. In the way, it had a little annoying ramp that after walking, my knees become painful. I suggest you if your knees are weak, certainly use knee strap and enjoy hiking.

When parking in the brown signposted car park ensure you park on the lower level as the top level is reserved for residents. Parking is paid for at the meter and in English. The climb to the top was straight forward enough but not accessible...More
