“A beautiful, well preserved castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

It is very impressive, with its stone walls and battlement! The moats - where you could see a couple of fishermen - adds a lot to the view and enriches your photos.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

The Fougeres castle is very nice. We used audio guide and it was interesting. The surrounding area worth visiting even more :-).
We enjoyed the visit, but on the other hand we are coming from the Czech Republic and there are lot of similar castles and fortresses, that are even nicer; so Fougeres was not that much for us.
Nice view to the old city is from beautiful French garden Jardin public.

“Impressive castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Impressive medieval fortress with many high and well preserved towers, it looks great both outside because of its massive walls but also inside with the inner court and the towers you can climb on top of them.

“Magnificent castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Huge and breathtaking Fougeres is a really great afternoon visit perhaps with a crepe in the little square outside the entrance before or after your visit.
The audio guide and the stories were interesting without being overlong. The castle is very well kept and the people in reception very friendly.
