Chillon Castle - Great Attractions in Switzerland
Take a tour of Chillon Castle in Switzerland -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.

It would be hard to choose the better view-- looking at Chillon Castle from the waters of Lake Geneva, or vice versa. 

Chillon Castle sits on the Switzerland portion of the lake, nestled against the Swiss Alps. 

Over 100 buildings lie in the premises of the castle, which were eventually connected to form today's structure.

This setting has inspired many throughout the years, including Lord Byron and Victor Hugo

Though not definitely dated, some parts of the castle can be traced back to over 1,000 years ago.

Multiple periods in history played an important part in shaping Chillon's history.

The castle boasts of a magnificent museum which can also be used for hosting events.
