Trip Planner: Europe / France / Hauts-de-France / Aisne / Coucy-le-Chateau-Auffrique / Chateau of Coucy
Chateau of Coucy is listed on France’s Monument Historique. The castle, built in the 1220s by Enguerrand III de Coucy, was renovated by Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century. In April 1917, the German army dynamited the keep and the four towers using 28 tons of explosives to prevent their use by enemy artillery spotters as the Germans fell back from the region. Despite this, you can now safely enjoy the family-friendly atmosphere of this most visited castle in France.

One of my highlights on this trip so far. Beautiful ruins, large dimensions, good information in 3 languages (french, english and german). Don' t miss a visit of the village with its church and portals.
