It was very romantique to be married in the room inside the castle. We had a nice view over the lac of Neufchatel. Already the entrance makes you feel in medieval times. We found it funny to see that the office to the police is in there too!

This is a must if you visit Estavayer-le-lac. It's been beautifully maintained. Unfortunately most of it houses local administration offices and is not suitable for public viewing. The offices have not been restored in an original manner and are rather boring. However, if you are lucky enough to visit the dungeon with a good guide; I can thoroughly recommend it.

I was lucky enough to visit this town during the Red Bull Velodux cycle race around and through the castle. Great event, highly recommend. Amazing location and very nice people throughout the town with some very nice cafes and restaurants spread throughout.

If you've already seen a bazillion castles and only want to see the biggest and "best", Château de Chenaux might not be for you. If you like sites that are off the beaten track (ie, fewer tourists), that have their own charm, and that happen to be in or near the town of Estavayer-le-Lac, it's worth a visit. The castle...
