    90 minutes to discover the most important medieval fortress in Lorraine. Come and discover the five centuries of history of the fortification. Follow the guide and explore the ditches, the underground network of galleries and the rooms of the fortified area!

    The fortress is opened to visitors all year. The meeting point is the Guyot d'Avilley Cultural Centre, located in the former Notre-Dame convent. The guided tour begins at the museum and continues with a visit to the remains, which cover more than 55,000 m2.
    A tourist and cultural programme, for all audiences, is offered to visitors from March to November (exhibitions, restoration work camps for young people, shows and introductory courses in heritage professions). Reservations MUST be made by calling (+33)3 29 67 14 18 (maximum 9 people per group).

    Every two years, the event Les Médiévales attracts a large number of visitors, much to the delight of young and old alike, where knights, birds of prey and acrobats meet (next edition on 22 and 23 May 2021).

    The educational service of the fortress welcomes more than 4000 children per year from schools, leisure centres and specialised establishments (IME, FAP...) for a day or a week. After a visit, the little historians can learn about archaeology, calligraphy, heraldry, illumination, pottery, basketwork, stained glass and mosaics. Contact us at reservation@vieux-chatel.fr
    The detailed programme of all activities is available on www.chatel-medieval.com
    Possibility of thematic group visits and/or accompanied by lunch or dinner. If you wish, this can be done in costume (please contact us).
    We look forward to welcoming you to the fortress!
