Grandson

The 2nd biggest castle in Switzerland overlooks Lake Neuchâtel, in the centre of Grandson, a historic and cultural town.

The mediaeval town and castle of Grandson illustrate this area’s long history. Built in the 13th century, the castle played a key role in the Burgundian Wars against Charles the Bold. Now listed as a national monument, it houses collections of armour and crossbows as well as a more unusual collection of vintage cars. In August, the Mediaeval Festivals known throughout Switzerland are held here.

Visit the Maison des Terroirs tourist office to sample local wines and products and Saint Jean-Baptiste Church, a fine and respectfully refurbished example of 12th century architecture.

With a wide range of bike trails and surrounded by the Bonvillars vineyards, Grandson combines sport, culture, nature and fine living for a complete wine tourism holiday.
