The fort of Sedan tells a lot of stories of wars from centuries back. It makes the history alive. What I missed was more about the 2000th century wars.

The location is magnificent, a hotel in the castle. The rooms are very basic, expecting more in such a location. Service and breakfast are ok. Restaurant is bit outdated for both interior and menu.

This is an incredibly old structure. However; I feel the area is missing a golden opportunity by allowing much of it to just sit there and decay

Definitely worth the tour, but difficult if you have physical limitations. Who would have guessed that old castles were built to different standards. :D
