An intriguing castle with 2 towers to visit and fascinating exhibitions. Typically French in layout using the building as a backdrop rather than recreating scenes. Well restored. Lots of spiral staircases to climb! The crypt has fascinating tomb effigies which say much about the roles...More

This was a bit of a challenge climbing all the winding stairs, but very enjoyable. The exhibits in the various chambers were interesting, especially the armes exhibit. Also interesting to watch the jousters preparing themselves for the ride about town. Overall a good visit!

Very interesting, specially if you like to learn about the beginnings of France! Very close to all major historical sites. Parking is messy and a little confusing to get there as a first time tourist, but it's worth it!

A large chunk of this castle dates back to the 13th century. Start your Dinan visit here in the morning before it gets crowded. There is wonderful history and spiral staircases to climb and views to enjoy from the top. Be sure NOT to forget...More

The best thing here is to go to the top of the keep for the views around the city, but then this can also be done from the Clock Tower!

We walked the castle walls on a windy and not so pleasant day. The views from the castle walls are wonderful,looking towards the beaches and the islands.

This is our first visit to Dinan and we decided to tour the Chateau early in the day before the rains decided to descend. We were intrigued by the story behind the Chateau and the many great rooms and spectacular view from the ramparts. The...More

The museum exposition is simple and unassuming but this sightseeing is of another kind. Suddenly we spent about 2 hours and were impressed. It was great and funny to explore 2 huge donjons: to climb up and down spiral stairs, to get to the roof...More

Great views over the town and surrounding countryside. You have to climb a lot of steps through. It is a good reflection on life centuries ago with massive rooms and fireplaces.
