One of the most beautiful visits in the Ardennes. Best period is the Mediaval games. You can experience the life of a knight in an old castle

We drove under the porch and felt like a Duke and Duchess, we had a delicious diner and stayed for one night in a well decorated room. Breakfast next morning was good! Very nice experience!

Sedan is a town that is clearly struggling economically. The fort is great, but the surrounding area is decaying, closed and not very salubrious - at night it is quite 'shady'. There is lots of graffiti and boarded up houses - the middle and upper...More

I really wish I could write something super nice about the old city of Sedan. Perhaps I could, if I were a time traveller and went back to 1870. But in 2016 very little remains of the city's former glory. During my short walk I...More

We went to the Saturday market, followed by a trip to the castle. Market was not as extensive as we thought it would be. But content was very local. Really enjoyed walking around, looking at the cheeses, meats, pate's. Settled on some duck breasts and...More

As the previous reviewer said, the old town is around the Castle and worth a wander for half an hour but many bars and cafes closed on the Monday evening. Nice visit for 1, maybe 2 nights but no need to linger any longer here.

The historic part of Sedan town nestles just below the walls of the castle and provides a glimpse of what the town would have been like in the 18th and 19th centuries. There are a few streets of old houses and shop fronts which are...More
