Christmas Castle - Noel Au Chateau

Loved the outside of Santa's Castle, but the inside has been closed since it was gutted by fire in 2015. They have never rebuilt the tallest part of the Castle following the fire. The Christmas Boutique is still open next door.

It's about $10/person or around $30/family to tour the castle. The tour guides do not speak English so maybe we lost some translation. I thought it was slightly expensive but I suppose the kids enjoyed it.

Christmas Castle

Before it was all pink and it was an attraction park for kids named Dream Castle. Since 2002 it has been repainted and its new vocation is Christmas all year long (Noel Au Chateau). This replica of the Disney castle seems lost in this small city. You can visit it and also sleep there if you make reservations. Always fun to take a picture with it. There is also a Moby Dick replica on the site to take pictures with in memories of the glorious days of the Dream Castle!
