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!

Just went around and through and there was a nice music play with piano and cello. Romantic! The view on the town is great too

Kids enjoyed making puppets and discovering the museum. We discovered that they host birthday parties too.

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
