Great place for a family stroll on a Sunday. The castle has been also renovated on the facades, which now look stunning.

Coming back from a long trip to Villers-Cotterets to visit The Musee Dumas (separate review), we stop here to have lunch and decide to take a look at the Chateau. Modest admission of €7 gets you in. As most French “chateaux”, this is more impressive from the outside than inside. Plan to spend max 1 hour. Then walk across the... More

The museum is a specialised archaeological museum not based around the chateau but you can just wander in the courtyard and see the chapel without paying the entrance fee.

I've stayed in Saint-Germain-en-Laye more than once and love this town a quick ride to the west of Paris, and easily accessible by train. Although overshadowed by Versailles, 20-30 minutes away, the Chateau de St. Germain is beautiful in its own right and offers a bonus, as it is home today to the French National Archeology Museum, wth precious antiquities...
