Vacation day 4 – Chillon & Gruyeres

On our way to Zurich, Switzerland we made a couple of stops. First to the castle in Chillon which lies on the Lake Leman.

Chillin' at Chillon

The oldest parts of the castle have not been definitively dated, but the first written record of the castle is in 1160 or 1005

People use to sleep sitting up and then would take care of their bathroom business next to their bed

From Chillon we went to Gruyeres where we felt like we were in the Disney story “Beauty and the Beast.” The historical town is placed on top of an isolated hill north of the alps, in the foothills of mount Mol├ęson. This city of Gruyeres is also known for its cheese, although I don’t know if we tried it or not.

Belle should be at the fountain singing while a sheep comes up to her

The Gruyeres castle, one of the most prestigious in Switzerland, towers majestically above the medieval town.
