Welcome schoolchildren

Your pupils are welcome at the castle.

They can explore the interiors of the castle, the model ships room and the park.

A guided tour of the interiors allows them to get familiar with the daily life of the 18th century in a quirky way. The model ships room can be visited in an autonomous manner by means of cards and short videos. 

The pupils can participate in a trail game in the whole park, in which they investigate to find the thief of the castle’s candles. Thanks to puzzles, observations and little games, they can learn about the life during the 18th century while having fun.

Ask for the presentation booklet.

The tours are suitable for primary school students (6 to 11 years old).
