Two moated castles in great danger: the knowledgeable Savoy Lord of Chillon Castle has come to inspect the fortifications at Hallwyl Castle. Will the walls withstand the siege and are the gates strong enough?

The Lord of Chillon Castle tells us how he defended his castle against enemy attacks. Children can try out the “siege cat” and learn how to storm a castle.

Adults can attend a special guided tour and learn about the everyday lives and routines of the former castle inhabitants and find out interesting facts about the archaeological finds recovered from the moat.
