Visited the place by accident. Was going from Florenville to Verdun and saw the towers of the Cathedral and decided to go checked it out. The place is very nice, with medieval gates, a huge Cathedral and a few houses. Some of the places are...More

If you arrive by car, you can drive directly into the citadel through a narrow road and tunnel. Access to the ramparts ( a 40 minute self-guided walk) is paid. The path is accessible with prams, with a few benches along the way. People actually...More

I visited this place first time nearly 50 years ago. It was totally overgrown and falling to bits. An international work camp in 1969 took care of that. Most of the trees were felled and the walls cleared of ivy. The goal: to attracts tourists....More

Commanding a foreboding prescience on the Montmedy skyline this citadel is well worth a visit. Ok, it's a little tired inside, but what an unexpected surprise to walk within the fortifications. I wasn't really interested in either the museum or ramparts. I'm very pleased we...More

We discovered this site almost by accident, while driving from the beautiful village Avioth to Torgny. This fortified little village is fully under (re)construction but promises to become a nice spot to spend an hour or so. You can make a little walk around the...More

I'm not sure which Citadelle other reviewers here have been to but I've just spent a lovely day with husband and two collies exploring Montmédy Citadelle. No, it's not tidy, no it's not "well kept" - but it doesn't need to be. If it was...More
