Unveiling Chateau de Vincennes

Imagine standing before a towering vision of French history that transformed from the once opulent residence of King Louis IX to a formidable arsenal safeguarding Napoleon's weapons. The Chateau de Vincennes is a 14th-century Gothic masterpiece cloaked in beige limestone that welcomes you with its presence as you approach it. Ascend the 52-meter medieval keep where Parisian cityscape views wait for you at the end of the stairs. You can make out the Eiffel Tower at the horizon, the spires of the Notre Dame cathedral, and the winding curves of the Seine River from the keep.

From royal soirees to Napoleon's arsenal

Step inside the keep's cool interior and relive French history. King Henry V breathed his last in these halls, a chilling reminder of the Chateau's pivotal role in the Hundred Years' War. The keep also held other famous French personalities of the time like Fouquet who was King Louis X’s accountant, accused of misusing funds and potentially threatening the king. A multilingual audio guide will be your companion, narrating a tale of battles and strategies as you descend the keep. Explore the grand halls, their opulence echoing with the festivities of royal soirees long past. As time passed, these same spaces transformed into Napoleon's barracks and arsenal, as the silent guardians of Paris.
