Eine schöne Kirche, leider nicht so oft geöffnet.

I share all positive opinions. The church is very picturesque. So is the entire town.

We were married in St. Peter's today. The church is beautiful, historic and well maintained. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Paster and his daughter two of the friendliest people we could ask for to perform our ceremony. The Paster took the time to speak slower than normal (for my benefit) due to German is my second language and my wife's first. Thank you and may God be with you both.

Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) is a large castle located in Nantes. It served as the centre of the historical province of Brittany until its separation in 1941. It was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, subsequently becoming the Breton residence of the French Monarchy. Today the castle houses the Nantes History Museum.

The restored edifice now includes the new Nantes History Museum, installed in 32 of the castle rooms. The museum presents more than 850 objects of collection with the aid of multimedia devices. The castle and the museum try to offer a modern vision of the heritage by presenting the past, the present and the future of the city. Night-time illuminations at the castle further reinforce the revival of the site. The 500-metre round walk on the fortified ramparts provides views not just of the castle buildings and courtyards but also of the town.
