The chateau has undergone an extensive refurbishment and the exterior and courtyard look splendid. There are a large number of exhibits, but more explanations and information would be welcome. A whole section of the museum was closed off, no mention of that had been made...More

The chateau has a great museum that contains artefacts from around the globe, mostly Stone Age through to medieval and a well stocked gift shop. The gardens are well tended and extensive and offer a magnificent view towards Paris and the Seine.

Visiting towns around Paris is a real treat for me. Saint Germain-en-Laye is a prime example of the town I like best :) The town is dominated by a historical chateau which once belonged to the royal family. The exterior has been recently restored, so...More

You cannot miss seeing this building since it dominates Saint Germain and is right next to the park. It's quite large and part of it is now an archeological museum. Overall Saint-Germain-en-Laye is a lovely place to visit if you have exhausted Paris and want...More
