I had the chance to visit the castle at sunset and have dinner. The guide was extremely professional and sounded confident. The view from the castle is unique! Lots of history in one place!

We didn't have a specific plan in Angers so we toured randomly, and reached this Castle. Its structure that seems like a well protected area, in addition to the space between the walls and the street are unique for me and it is nice how it is still in a very good condition, you can spend easily 2 hours there.
And they also have inside the largest Apocalypse Tapestry in the world which was amazing and unexpected.
I recommend everyone that passes in Angers to pass by this Castle.

We had two hours available before catching a train in Angers, and decided to visit the chateau. What a surprisingly amazing place! We expected to spend an hour and found that it really was worth more than two hours for the visit. The fortress appearance on the outside belies a beautiful garden and buildings on the inside. And most amazing is a breathtaking and enormous tapestry from the 13th century that takes up an entire museum inside the castle. Definitely worth the stop to visit this chateau.

The castle at Angers is a really cool fortified castle. The outer walls and towers are substantial and make for an awesome walk on the ramparts. The English audio guide is interesting and very informative. The Apocalypse Tapestry is also incredible and there is a lot of information on it in the audio guide. The audio guide goes through each individual section of the tapestry. The gardens inside the dry moat and in the castle are pretty nice too. You will get a lot of great photos here and anyone interested in seeing a cool castle will thoroughly enjoy this. This castle is on my top 5 list of European castles that I have seen and I have been all over Europe. Don't miss the castle or the tapestry.

Lovely way to spend half a day in Angers. Lots to see. Shame that the Apocalypse tapestry is so dark that it is difficult to pick out the story
Lovely restaurant providing first class lunch French style - pay your money and enjoy a selection of starters, choose a main course and take as many desserts as you would care to.
There is a lovely gotto train to give you a flavour of the town .

Enjoyed our visit, hope you do too.
