Great place to visit

A lovely medieval castle surrounded by an equally as lovely town. Definitely worth a visit for people of all ages.

An interesting, well conserved castle that just needs a little more information to make sense of all of its features. If you don't want to use the audio guide, there isn't a lot to bring the features of this castle to life. It just needs a few inconspicuous information panels to explain how the different aspects of the castle were... More

This medieval castle and town are amongst the highlights of the region. The castle has not been excessively renovated and so retains a wild nature that appeals to children and adults alike. There are plenty of winding staircases to the tops of towers which offer stunning views. The audio guide is included in the price. There are children's versions available... More

This is an excellent place to visit. It is quite hard work, as it is very large, so do not attempt it if you are not fit. But it can also be seen very well from the municipal gardens at the top of the town, from a distance.

We explored the castle and grounds, kids loved looking in all the nooks and crannies. Some great views from the top of the turrets. Option for audio tour which we didn't do, but guide leaflet and some of the signs had English version, which was good. Lovely cafe directly outside the castle. Also recommend the circular walk around the castle/old... More

Fougeres is only an hour or so from Caen and well worth the visit. A medieval town that boasts 1000 year old buildings still occupied and a magnificent castle, chateau de Fougeres that well worth the 8 euro entry fee. Start at the end of the Main Street, Rue de National (same street as the tourism office) near the church... More

This is a ruined castle that you can wander all through. There a really dumb audio, which I ignored pretty quickly, and we scrambled all through this amazing chateau. Wow.

This beautiful castle is an absolute must together with Fougeres itself. You should walk to the Cathedral and visit the beautiful park. From there, you can follow the marks and reach the castle through the medieval area. Spend a couple of hours going up and down through the stairs and enjoy the beautiful view of the town. Highly recommended!

Excellent value for money considering you get the added attractions of admission to the musee and the bell tower. The audio visual experiences were so well done and don't miss the four water wheels at the entrance. An awe inspiring castle!!

Good family day out, children loved the audio and the displays were really good. Interactive people in costume walking around too. Well worth a visit
