It worth a short stay if you are going to some place like St. Malo or Mt St Michel. Not like other places which is full of people and noise, this Chateau is a good place for short walk and relax.

This is a really neat castle where you can climb the towers and walk the parapets. There is not much on the inside to see, the two large buildings only allowed you to enter one floor and the displays were rather sparse. It is an old castle and worth seeing if you are into old medieval castles. If you enjoy... More

We found this place by accident while driving from Mont Saint Michel to Tours. If you like castle ruins, this is an excellent place to poke around it. It's HUGE, and that whole section of town is covered with ruins, old walls, old buildings. As you can see from photos of the place, from several angles it still looks like... More

We travelled from St Malo to visit and it was worth the drive, the castle is virtually complete so you can get a glimpse of what medieval life was like. The only downside is the annoying American accent on the "ENGLISH" audio

It's all been said by previous reviewers: Chateau de Fougeres is absolutely stunning, virtually complete and not even expensive to visit. If you take one of the audio guides (free) in the language of your choice you will learn about the history and features displayed before you. In addition, interactive features and videos are also provided (also free). A fascinating... More

Possibly, clearly there are a lot of contenders but the Chateau de Fougeres has to be on the top 10 list of castles of the world. It was certainly a large fortress in a commanding position and there is enough left for a full circumnavigation around the walls and trips up and down numerous towers, all with great views of...

Very interesting visit to the château with lots of interesting architecture and views to be enjoyed. Audio guide was very good and synced up in English to give you all the history about the château and the region.

This château has to be seen to be believed. It is absolutely stunning and well worth a visit. It's not far from Mont St Michel which is another amazing attraction on the coast. This really brings history to life and gives it a new dimension if you study the subject.
