Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • Passed the Chateau on my way to Santiago de Compostela. It can be seen from far away, sitting on its rock, and it's as beautiful as majestic.  more »
  • They are missing out on providing a great experience here. Lovely chateaux but no furniture, just great big empty rooms. Just a load of period dresses hanging about. They could have done so much more....  more »
  • This castle is well worth the entrance fee. There are interpretative signs in English. I visited the castle in July 2015  more »
  • Really exciting place where you want to come back ... have been there several times over the past 8 years and you can see that it is improving continuously. In addition, entering the price is fine and you can pack your car close to. I would like to recommend that you go in and see the place ... and maybe a trip into the square in the city center, which is within walking distance of the castle.
  • Fantastic château, very historic. Very friendly and helpful staff with good English language. Write ups and information leaflets etc all in English as well as French.
  • The biggest attraction of the city, beautiful gardens and renovated castle. Entrance at a fee.
  • Really beautiful and rich history. Was a little disappointed, however, because all the rooms were completely empty, and almost all signs were in French only. There was even a guided tour in slottornet, who was also only in French.
