  • What a nice park say! Great, clean and tidy. Beautiful and educational. Friendly staff. Back in time. Candle making, baking bread on open fire, making bracelet. Canoe, raft, arm massage, make spells, so many games or things the kids can do in all small cottages. Another nice spectacle seen with knights. Everywhere to sit and have lunch. Really a park where you have to go with your teenager.

  • Archeon is one of those places that I really need to visit every year (at least once). Everything is nicely built and organized, with impeccable attention to detail. It is perfect to spend the day especially on sunny days. Once you enter the premises, you are fully immersed in a world that once existed and you only red about in books. Make sure to visit the monastery and taste their local beer with a hearty pancake.
  • Really fun park. The employees really make it very exciting. Great place to teach your kids a few things
