Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • A friendly, then the grid after we move in the fort with a plan. Despite the explain tables we lack complementary information on this fort. However the upkeep by the teams in place, allows to have a peaceful walk with our dogs (allowed), in this fort. An exhibition on the art of firefighter is offered to us but there still not done, nor to do and exposure doesn't have a "sense". That said the exposed materials and costumes are in very good condition and it is level. This visit will be like 3:00 in "good walk" with in more round the fort outside and its arboretum (where the missing a lot of information plates), but it's cheap for a visit simple (we had advised the tour, so think about it!)

  • Excellent but de promenade instructive.
  • 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
