This is a top attraction with an informative, easy to use, audio guide. There’s a free car park nearby. The photos don’t lie; this is a really splendid castle. Enjoy.

This chateau is very interesting and fun to tour. Self guided tour device told its history along the way. Added touch throughout the chateau - boxes with keys - you open to find more information. Really great chateau to visit.

The cost of admission (8 euros) includes a self guided tour device with interesting stories that really made the chateau come to life for us. Several little cafes around the entrance so you can sit and have a glass of wine and look at it all.

We had a look at what the main attractions were in Brittany and saw that Fougeres was listed as 23. I think this should be higher up the list as it was a really lovely town, with beautiful views from the Jardin. Expect a lot of walking but even with a buggie we didn't find it a problem.

Best day of my holiday so far, the castle is magnificent and the town is beautiful. We could have easily missed the best bits, but luckily we popped into the tourist info and picked up a map with a tourist walk around the town.

An excellent castle with the added bonus of agree audio guides in English. The area surrounding the castle is also well maintained adding to the general ambience. Very friendly staff on reception and a fascinating experience for the family.

It is very impressive, with its stone walls and battlement! The moats - where you could see a couple of fishermen - adds a lot to the view and enriches your photos.

The Fougeres castle is very nice. We used audio guide and it was interesting. The surrounding area worth visiting even more :-). We enjoyed the visit, but on the other hand we are coming from the Czech Republic and there are lot of similar castles and fortresses, that are even nicer; so Fougeres was not that much for us. Nice... More

Impressive medieval fortress with many high and well preserved towers, it looks great both outside because of its massive walls but also inside with the inner court and the towers you can climb on top of them.
