Nice Place

One of the ruins in the gorgeous German Moesel area. Not a very special ruin, but the coolest part is probably climbing the tower which gives a great view (see pictures). The entrance fee to the tower is €2,50. There is a bathroom there.

Really cheap. 2,50 euro entrance. The view was amazing on the river and the city near it. The climbing to the castle is about 10 min or so. You can also can go up onto the tower for even better view. I loved it

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.
