Scary Night at the Castle

Riddles and scavenger hunts are the themes of this year’s gathering, when visitors come in costume to discover the castle by night, in the light of old-time torches.

Costume contest for young and less young !


Children are under the responsibility of their parents or accompanying adults at all times.
The visit to the castle can be truly wintery... Make sure to dress warmly!

A small area with vending machines is at your disposal for refreshments, but please do not picnic within the castle itself.

Public Transport
We highly recommend you use public transport to come to the castle.

•Family rate is for two adults and up to 5 children.
•From 6:30 to 11:30 pm. Last entry: 9:30 pm.

•Is it scary? Of course... but always in a friendly mood!
(nb:if you have young children, come at the beginning to enjoy before the night, which would more frighten them).
