Shop

Our shop, located in the reception area of the Château de Prangins – Swiss National Museum, is open from 10.00 to 17.00, Tuesdays to Sundays.

Here you will find a selection of books from which you can learn more about topics encountered at the museum, complemented by catalogues of temporary exhibitions, as well as books on botany and national, regional and local history.

The ‘gifts’ area offers original decorative objects, postcards, ‘vintage’ children’s toys and other thoughtful presents to delight your family and friends. Our priority is to choose articles made by local and Swiss artists or produced in sheltered workshops.

Café du Château

During your visit to the Château de Prangins , why not enjoy a meal in the ‘Café du Château’. Open from 9.30 to 17.30, Tuesdays to Sundays, this restaurant is located in the former servants' wing, on the site of the 18th-century kitchens. 

Let us tempt you, during the week, with our seasonal menu, our menu of the day or our desserts, prepared (according to availability) using the vegetables, aromatic herbs and fruits from the historic kitchen garden of the Château de Prangins. The café’s panoramic terrace is ideally situated, offering an unlimited view over the extensive park of the estate.

Brunch and private dining

On Sundays, enjoy the famous brunch buffet at your leisure (booking highly recommended). If, on the other hand, you would like to organise a dinner, banquet or cocktail reception for a group of 20 or more guests, the Café du Château and its magnificent terrace can be privately booked for the evening (up to 60 seats inside; on the terrace, capacity for 150 people, standing).
