  • The castle's majestic including the part used to the Ministry of defence, unfortunately we cannot visit only a small part of the property of the Château de Vincennes. The tour is in a lovely setting with large spaces. This castle lack of soul for the parts it is possible to visit.

  • For me this medieval Dungeon and these beautiful arches with polychromy and wainscoting and a magical place. I fall back into childhood and imagine Knight... The Chapel is so bright and also very beautiful. Unique in Paris

  • Very cool castle, Lot's to see including a beautiful church and castle. The ground are large and easy to walk around. The best part not many tourists.
  • A nice historical place and not too crowdy to visit. Calm and quiet, good for a walk!
  • Worth a visit...tons of history here and it's not a full day visit like many historic sites in and around Paris.
  • Great rarely visited place in Paris. Nice place to walk around. Located at the top of a massive park
  • Nice palace but not very interesting.
