Trip Planner: Europe / France / Centre-Val de Loire / Eure-et-Loir / Chateaudun / Historic Sites / Chateau of Chateaudun
Built between the 12th and 16th centuries, Chateau of Chateaudun shows off its origins as a 12th-century fortress overlooking the Loire River Valley. Perched on a limestone outcrop, this converted castle underwent renovations adding outstandingly authentic Gothic, feudal, and Renaissance architectural elements. The main roofing has a Gothic style, and inside, a finely wooden carved staircase remains from this period. Today, the castle includes the chapel, the Dunois wing, the Longueville wing, and a large keep that is 31 m (100 ft) high and 17 m (59 ft) in diameter.

Entre le château fort et le renaissance on sent qu'on se rapproche de la Loire.

Unfortunately a wing on the 2 was in the works, so I was able to enjoy that ground-floor kitchen with large vaulted rooms but empty and the hanging garden. I recommend a walk in the streets with a typical average age. If you park you down your legs are echaufferont on the 200 steps of the staircase saint Pierre.
L'entrée du château est à 4.50 euros mais il est vide . Il n'y a plus aucun meuble, ni tapisserie comme la chapelle d'ailleurs à part une ancienne fresque.

The hanging garden is original with the view of the Loir. The tower is in perfect condition but a hundred markets!
J'ai effectué plus de 10 visites dans ce château. A chaque fois, il y avait une pièce nouvelle ouverte au public.

There are kitchens, prisons, the monument of the prisoners, the Dungeon, the medieval garden, the hanging gardens. The Chapel is beautiful. And the must is to have access to the attic of the Castle where there are apartments of "small staff". Rare visit.
The biggest attraction of the city, beautiful gardens and renovated castle. Entrance at a fee.
Frederic HermannFun to do... Very pretty Châteaudun and Park but is missing one or more guides for the visit and the history of the Castle...
Matthieu BruckertIn very bad condition, but very interesting to visit. The Dungeon is superb.
