I first thought, just another castle. But no ! It is the biggest in Europe that is this well preserved/restored, and it really is impressive ! We also bought a little booklet (2€) which was worth the money, as it leads you trough the castle...More

An impressive and Huge fort, which has attracted more than it's fair share of interest from the military on both sides of the frontier. Although, as we were told, a large part of the damage seen was self inflicted when the French Military was trying...More

This hotel is just okay. The Breakfast is better than average but the rooms were very basic. I think it is the best option in Sedan.

We visited the castle, while staying in the hotel. The movie is very informative and the tour throughout the castle very thorough. It's a gorgeous place where you can have some amazing views when on top of the building. The museum is great as well!...More

Largest château fort in Europe. Unbelievable experience. Be sure to visit in May there's a mediaval festival during one week-end. They used to have a nightly visit with torches but better check their website to be sure whether they still do it.

We were in Paris and in order to get to the outlying areas, we rented a car. It was pretty inexpensive and even went a bit past the Sedan to just inside the Belgium border to see Bouillon Castle the same day. It was a fairly... More
