Unlike a traditional museum tour, this unusual but equally informative educational tour involves participants in a simulated “Castle Assault" that will stimulate their rational and emotional reactions and also help them remember the experience.
Three interconnected elements - Action Training / Emotion / Game - are used as pedagogical tools to enhance the participants’ learning capacity.
In addition to the normal tour of the Castle’s rooms, collections, courtyards and ramparts, participants
will perform theoretical and practical activities in the Park and Stables.
After an initial briefing, participants will be given a short "lesson on knots"; they will be taught how to make simple knots as well as learn their purpose and how they work so that they can use this knowledge during the actual assault on the castle. Participants are then divided into groups; each group will decide on the best strategy to conquer the fortress either by climbing the old walls and entering the Castle through a small, four metre service door, or by challenging each other while walking along an aerial cable car.
Anyone can take part in this completely safe activity. Trained staff are on hand at all times to supervise the entire experience.
Duration: 2 hours and 30 minutes.
Admission price: € 12 per student. Two free tickets for accompanying persons every 15 students.
