Chateau Chillon, near Montreux, Switzerland

When I was a kid my family lived in Switzerland for a couple of years. This castle was at the other end of Lac Leman/Lake Geneva where we lived but we visited it many times on weekends. You can’t tell by these pictures put the mountains are towering over the castle both behind it, to one side, and across the lake. Stunning location, and in the huge dining room/ballroom along the lake side of the castle you could hear the waves splashing down below. I visited it later on when I was a teenager and me and a couple of friends, by mistake, stayed after closing time and actually got locked in the dungeon. Only for a short while though.
