Grandson Castle

Overlooking Lake Neuchâtel, the Castle of Grandson is a medieval fortress with a thousand years of history that found itself at the heart of European history during the Burgundy Wars between Charles the Bold and the Swiss Confederates.

Built between the 11th and 13th centuries, the castle of Grandson played a central role in the Burgundy Wars and the Battle of Grandson (1476). The Duke of Burgundy Charles the Bold, defeated by the Confederates, left behind a prestigious spoils, including numerous pieces of artillery.
