Surprisingly small inside, the chateau has a domestic feeling and has great views of the lake. I was most impressed with the locking doors on the prison cells on the top floor, and and a tower treasury room. Good to have the bank right in...More

The Castle is eye-catching, very easy access from Nyon Gardens (worth to see!). The museum has an observation deck with the stunning view of Alps and Lac Leman! I think Nyon is underestimated city, I've already visited a few places around Geneva Lake and I...More

A Disney-esque dream of a place with fantastic views anda fruit-filled terrace taking you down to the lakeside via a cluster of medieval buildings. Wonderful wall paintings inside, plus a porcelain museum. Very popular wedding venue.

Great venue for a business lunch. High end service and food. Pricy, but what is not in Switzerland. Well worth the visit. Will be back.

Attended a civil wedding on a beautiful May day in this little chateau which is also a museum! The view of the Lake Leman, from the chateau, is magnificent! Worth a visit and the small town of Nyon has many little boutiques and nice restaurants!

The castle courtyard has amazing views, and is free, it's not a part of the paid museum. When I was there people were just sitting and eating lunch looking out at the lake. This isn't one of those museums set out like 'how people used...More
