Chateau Fort de Sedan Castle

Sedan (08 Ardennes. Grand Est) is a name that haunts the French with memories of the battles of the Great War and the Napoleonic Wars in Eastern France.

Sedan has always been a crucial point, situated on the River Meuse and just inside the border with Belgium. Hence the medieval fortified castle – le Chateau Fort, the largest in Europe (a fortress of 35,000 square metres) open to the public all year round (entrance fee €7.90 in 2012)

Between the main trunk roads of the North of Europe, is situated Sedan, the second city of the department of the Ardennes. Lined by the Meuse and dominated by the forest, Sedan has a green living environment and also a unique architectural heritage steeped in history. We invite you to come to the discovery of Sedan, be welcome!
