Very welcome. 1 little dear for 5 people. because not very big and the video at the theater dates and should be modernized.
Magnifique voyage dans le temps raconté par des guides motivés et qui connaissent le sujet. Le petit théâtre est d'une splendeur rare. La présence régulière de la Princesse est un must ! more »Beautiful journey through time narrated by motivated guides who know the subject. The small theatre is of rare splendour. The Regular presence of the Princess is a must!
A truly well preserved castle with a very interesting visitor experience. You are provided with an iPad and an application. There is also some guides for you. We were lucky enough to meet the family living there. Make sure to pay a visit to the city of Chimay that is beautiful as well.
Genuine, wonderful decorations, living history. In-use castle (not museum), can take photos inside.
