Major development projects are currently underway in a context of major historical discoveries.
To this end, the visiting route was somewhat modified and some of the castle's areas are temporarily inaccessible to the public.
This mainly concerns the hall and the corridor as well as the Vintage Automobile Museum, where the oldtimers have been temporarily removed.
During this period, the permanent exhibitions will be completely redesigned and we will be opening new exhibition spaces and inaugurating 4 new rooms with a new museum course.
Starting next spring 2018 you will be able to fully use the walkway (chemin de ronde): giving you a 360 degrees view. This is made possible due to an impressive bridge linking the south tour to the rest of the monument.
It is interesting to note that all this work has offered 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 Fribourg.
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!
