“Aussie family Trip to France 2011”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

Wonderful place to visit. The kids had fun, liked we all did. We did the whole tour, including under the ground and the bell tower. Lots to see, and very interesting.

“World Heritage Site - not open to the public”
Reviewed 9 November 2010

We recenly identified the Citadel in the local Arras tourist information as worth a visit and followed the signs to the site about 3 km away. It was disappointing to find the site was not open. There were two young girls at the boom gate who only spoke French. We peered into the vast courtyard and admired the huge barracks then headed back to the tourist centre to be advised that the citadel was a former military site which had been vacated two years ago. It was now under the management of Arras and the tourist people were unsure what the site will be used for or when it will be opened. Disappointing to have a world heritage site not open.
