  • Nice castle. Great information along the way and some nice exhibits depicting life at the castle during medieval times. Friendly staff, nice shop and clean toilets with a diaper changing station. Overall a great place to visit and easily spend an hour.
  • We love this place!!! 🏰 Make sure you spare enough time in Sedan just for the visit of this extraordinary place! We were amazed by its size, extraordinary architecture of the fortified castle and the breathtaking view from its terrace. What to expect 📷: A spectacular tournament (2-3 times a day, 45 minutes ), an impressive medieval camp with an artillery, a boutique with perfect gifts for everyone! Definitely recommend to every castle lovers!!!😘
