Fort de Conde, Chivres-Val

4.3
Fort de Conde is a fortification of the Séré de Rivières system built in France between 1877 and 1883 to defend the land between Soissons and Laon. Although the fort was obsolete at the start of World War I, its command of strategic ground made it a coveted area throughout the war as it changed hands several times. Following the war, it was abandoned and then purchased by a local community for you to visit. To visit Fort de Conde on your trip to Chivres-Val, use our Chivres-Val trip itinerary planner .

  • Very interesting walk, and easy to follow signs mean a guided tour is not necessary.Can be muddy in places, wear suitable footwear if wet.  more »
  • The road leading from Bedford Val and leads us to the fort is quite narrow with many bleedings for stormwater flow, it is prudent to not driving too fast. Arriving on site we find parking nearby picnic-friendly with many tables. A signposted walk of 1.2 km around the fort which is advised to do in 25 minutes because many species (trees) are marked by small signs indicating their names. The home is immediately at the entrance of the fort, to choose the guided tour (€6.5) choice that we recommend. The staff is good and competent. The guided tour lasts ¾ h and allows you to better discover this fortification built by the General Rivieres.il Sere spans nearly 13 ha, caught and taken over by the 2 belligerents in the great war he served subsequently desobusage Center doomed to abandonment is an association of backup that partly restored and now allows to visit this place of memory.

  • We discovered the Condé fort. Surprising! Very well maintained, excellent, explanations sometimes very technical but always interesting. I would have liked more signs, indicating the use of the parts, installed directly in these parts (remember the detailed plan installed at the entrance of some sectors). The guided tour must be very interesting but the visit with the plan allows you to immerse yourself in this construction, which sometimes resembles a maze.

  • Excellent but de promenade instructive.
  • Very nice visit family and very attractive with the course of l Riddle. We learn a lot about the way of life of the soldiers and the operation of the fort during the wars. The price of the visit and the shop are very reasonable when we realize the costs of renovation and maintenance of the fort.

  • We visited the fort with our 2 boys of 11 and 13 years old, we followed the tour as they were doing the game. A big thank you to our friendly guide who knew the story of the fort and very gently guided our boys when they didn't answer the questions. A place full of history but which has a certain aesthetic. An excellent, brief to advise for the whole family
