Chateau de Grandson???

Anyone can advise whether I can walk to Chateau de Grandson from Neuchatel train station? I've tried hunting in http://www.neuchateltourisme.ch but can't see to find any infos on whether I can walk to the castle. The only clue I can get is that it is situated near the lake.

Sad thing is that the castle website are not in English too.

My friend who is travelling with me to Switzerland wanted very much to see the vintage Rolls Royce. Are there any other nice places to visit besides the Castle, the lake & the vintage cars?

Theoretically you can walk. The distance is 32 Km.

Chateau de Grandson is situated much closer to Yverdon than to Neuchatel.

I would use the public transport system. Train/bus.

Hi hikosencara,

The Chateau is actually in the town of Grandson, at the other end of the lake from Neuchatel. You would just take the train to Grandson --

I haven't ever been to the castle, but if you go to google maps and enter "Chateau de Grandon," it will pinpoint it for you. Look like it's right in town.

I just did a "from here" "to Grandson bahnhof" at google maps, and it's about half a km.

Have fun!

Thanks guys for the help.

After going through all the infos provided by you guys, this place seems to be easily accessible & interesting but unpopular as compared to Chillion.

My friend is awfully crazy about vintage cars. Hope this visit is really worthwhile.
