Sedan, the City of Art and History, a city for travelling back in time!

The proud "Geneva of the north" has never bowed its head, despite being fortified, extended, beautified, wounded, rebuilt, modernised .... Explore it today, with the wounds of the past centuries engraved in its stones.

Let the formidable fortress of the Princes of Sedan take you back to the middle ages! From its rocky spur dominating the bend in the Meuse, the impregnable Castle has been watching over the city for centuries. Mute witness to the fighting of the last three wars, the Castle is a key page in the history of France.
