Château de Chillon on the banks of Lac Leman : Montreux, CH
When friends come to visit, as happened earlier this month, it's quick and easy to take them to the Château de Chillon. It's especially fun in December, because the castle hosts a medieval festival complete with food and crafts, costumed re-enactors, and courtyard performers playing period instruments or tossing and spinning balls of fire. Because we had another engagement later in the evening, we couldn't stay for the flame throwers, but we did manage a few fun hours wondering around the castle made famous by Lord Byron. The next few days will feature photos from Switzerland's most visited site.
