The apparent austerity of this shale and limestone fortress, which the young king Louis IX had built on the edge of his kingdom in the 13th century, contrasts with the tranquil grounds inside the castle walls and the pleasant residence of the Dukes of Anjou, composed of buildings constructed at the end of the Gothic era. To transform and embellish the castle into a more welcoming home for the Anjou court, terraces and gardens were laid out, galleries built and the gateway erected. The star attraction within the walls of the Château d’Angers is the Tapestry of the Apocalypse or woven in 1375. With its 104 metres in length, it is the largest medieval tapestry anywhere in the world. Open: > 2nd May to 4th September: from 9.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. > 5th September to 30th April: from 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. Last admission 45 minutes before closing time. Closed: > 1st January, 1st May, 1st November, 11th November and 25th December.

A detour to the Castle of Angers is worth whatever it takes to get there. The castle itself, with its unique stone "striping" is impressive and decidedly medieval, but the real gem is the tapestry of the Apocalypse, housed within its walls. Words really cannot...More

This historic Chateau is definitely worth a visit. The price of admission includes the "Apocalypse Tapestries," which is well worth the trip alone. The Chateau is enormous with many different beautiful garden areas and walkways. The towers at each corner offer spectacular views of Angers....More

Very striking castle/chateau at Angers + amazing tapestry of the apocalypse. Average visit 1.5 hours seems about right - not a huge amount to see but kids go free so worth a visit.

You might think that Angers is a little town in France with few attractions, but this is not so, and the castle is the most important of all. The central part is the tapestry exhibition, and that is what most people go for. It is...More

We saw the sign for the castle on the highway and went to check it out. For such a large monument it was surprisingly hard to find - in the city we couldn't find any obvious markings and the GPS sent us to the wrong...More

Children will be thrilled by the huge fortress (though sadly enough unlike Carcassonne the towers have lost their roofs) and art lovers will be drawn to the tapestries of the Apocalypse which are a monument to human genius and stupidity (because of the abuse they...More

Brilliant castle, well managed. It only cost 18 euros, for a family of 4 which we felt was excellent value. The tapestries were superb, with the views of the city breath taking. Well worth a visit.

The castle dominates the city and is a must for any visitors if only for the spectacular views. However it also houses the Apocalypse Tapestry. Personally, I was moved to find that approximately 500 British sailors were imprisoned in the castle between 1779-1781 and some...More
