Extensive chateau well worth seeing.

The best thing here is to go to the top of the keep for the views around the city, but then this can also be done from the Clock Tower!

We walked the castle walls on a windy and not so pleasant day. The views from the castle walls are wonderful,looking towards the beaches and the islands.

This is our first visit to Dinan and we decided to tour the Chateau early in the day before the rains decided to descend. We were intrigued by the story behind the Chateau and the many great rooms and spectacular view from the ramparts. The stairs are not for the meek or those who have concerns about narrow enclosures.

The museum exposition is simple and unassuming but this sightseeing is of another kind. Suddenly we spent about 2 hours and were impressed. It was great and funny to explore 2 huge donjons: to climb up and down spiral stairs, to get to the roof and have a wonderful view of Dinan, to get to the dungeon and find stone... More

Great views over the town and surrounding countryside. You have to climb a lot of steps through. It is a good reflection on life centuries ago with massive rooms and fireplaces.

We have toured many castle ruins, and this was one of the better ones. The structure is virtually all intact. We were able to climb all the way onto the roof and the views of the town were great. They have many artifacts inside and it works well as a museum. I especially enjoyed going down to the cripts. Dinan... More

Very interesting place to visit if you don't have any form of disability, too many stairs with one side with no handrail or stair to walk safely.

Nice place to see and visits. It's nice to walk around especially if it had good weather. A bit expensive to eat and drink but worth the visit

Quite interesting for this type of site in France, the French don't seem to be able to make their great sites come to life. Having said that, this is a great site and deserves a visit. Just be ready for a lot of stone spiral stairs.
