Vufflens Castle

Vufflens Castle is an impressive building: it is over 60 meters high and has 6 storeys. The castle was built facing Lake Geneva, and its long history includes plenty of mysteries, given that it was ransacked many times over.

The castle is privately owned so it cannot be visited (except for the courtyard, which is open to the public). Its current proprietors are the Saussure family (whose ancestors owned it in the 17th century); they cultivate eight hectares of vines surrounding the fortress, and the wine from them is produced in the Castle's cellars by the House of Bolle.

Vufflens Castle is one of the oldest in the canton; there was already a fortress on this site in 1100. However, the building we know today dates from 1420 when it was reconstructed by Henri de Colombier. A prominent warlord who had fought many battles in Europe, Henri de Colombier chose military architecture for his castle, which is built of brick in the Italian style. The use of this material for a building of this size is unique in Switzerland.
