Major development projects are currently underway in a context of major historical discoveries.
To this end, the visiting route was somewhat modified. In addition, some objects were removed from the showcases due to restoration and preservation work within the castle.
This mainly concerns the hall and the corridor as well as the Vintage Automobile Museum, in which there are currently only 12 cars instead of the 17 in the collection.
For 2018, we will be opening new exhibition spaces and inaugurating 4 new rooms with a new museum course.
It is interesting to note that all this work has offerd us some very nice surprises as painted decors were recently discovered in the castle during restoration.
Some of them are in the Knights' Hall and its adjacent spaces. These date from the end of the 19th century.
The other part is located in the large corridor and its neighboring rooms. These date back to the 16th century and were authenticated as details of the coat of arms of the Reynold family, patrician family of Friborg.
To visit: the Hall of Arms and its imposing armor, the Knights' Hall with Renaissance stalls, the Salle des Banquets, the dungeons, the torture chamber, the Renaissance room, not to mention the 150-meter walkway.
On the other hand, a slideshow (duration 23 minutes) in French, German or English retraces the history of the monument.
The duration of the visit is about 1h30.
We look forward to welcoming you to Château de Grandson!
