Review Detail

Overall rating 

Good for older kids, challenging with young ones

We visited on a very busy Saturday in May. This chateau is in the old medieval city of Carcassonne and you pay 8euro and kids are free. There is an intresting movie that tells the history of the town and the castle but it is in French with English subtitles and so for non readers you will need to tell them what it says. The 5 year old found it very boring.
There are great views from the ramparts and interesting history all around. Lots of steps etc so not great for prams, like the rest of Carcassonne cite.
So I think good for older kids and adults will enjoy but difficult with young ones - a short visit will be possible but not much to amuse them really.
