Castle and town well worth a visit. There are guided tours or you can pick up a handset in your down language and take yourself round. We had a family ticket for 4 costing 22 euro which I think was good value. You can walk along most of the walls with good views of the town.

I really enjoyed touring the different parts of the castle, it feels as though you can imagine the real people who lived here centuries ago. I think that's partly because it isn't too fussy with lots of 'museum' pieces - the structure of the castle stands out when you're in it, also the unusual setting with the high town above... More

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...
