A miraculously preserved medieval castle
Protected by a double moat and accessible only by a single bridge, this castle comprises a lower bailey and an upper bailey. On the lower bailey, there is a group of half-timbered farm buildings including a farmhouse, dovecote and barn dating from the 15th and 16th centuries, where the peasants would have lived and worked. Near the 12th-century chapel, the upper bailey, on its fortified mound, is protected by its moat and wall. The 15th-century manor house where the seigneur lived can be found here.
Discovering everyday life in the Middle Ages
Let yourself be completely immersed in medieval times as you explore the half-timbered buildings. Living spaces are recreated with period objects and dressed to look how they would have done in their heyday. On the farm, discover how the peasants lived and worked. In the house, the dining table and bedroom have been recreated.
Activities and exhibitions
From March to October, the castle offers a wide range of activities: fishing in the castle moat, jousting tournaments, falconry shows, reconstructions of everyday life in the Middle Ages and more! There are also exhibitions on rural life in the medieval times, traditional half-timbered construction, and oil prospecting. There’s always something going on at the castle!
