Castle Concierge

Paris, France
4.6 / 5
Former royal castle on the island of Cité, one of the oldest in Paris. It was built on the site of the fortress of the VI century, where the king of the Franks Clovis lived. Until the end of the XIV century, the French monarchs lived in the castle, but after the court moved to the Louvre, the Conciergerie was turned into a prison, which over the centuries was overgrown with dark stories. Thousands of prisoners went from here to the guillotine (including Queen Marie Antoinette).

Really interesting and not crowded. They were just setting up a Marie Antoinette exhibit and I'm sad I won't get to see it. They had one section open where you could see a dress and it was gorgeous.


Accidentally came across this place, and glad I did-very interesting-well worth hiring the Histo-pads, they made the visit-next time I would get Audio, but that was my oversight. Highly recommend a visit, and would definitely visit again.


The place is completely empty, no furniture, nothing to see but they give you a tablet in which you can see a reconstruction of the past. That and the interactive mini games make it a nice 2h to spend. Recommend if you like the "imagine how it would .. Read more »

The Conciergerie is an amazing place of history - so chilling to walk through and think about the scenes it has witnessed for hundreds of years. The displays are informative and bring to life the history. We went in with our Museum Pass. We were unfo.. Read more »


Cool place - I have visited twice. Doesn't look like much from the outside but is an interesting piece of French history and a good, cool place to take a break while touring Paris


Their Marie Antoinette exhibit was Fantastic. I would've liked to know a bit more about what this place was sans the queen but I loved that the exhibition tailored their temporary show to the locale. Great Curatorial efforts!


Very interesting to learn of the Medieval building and way of life at that time. Worth the visit to see Marie Antoinette’s cell. May want to consider getting the histopad to get a feel of what it looked like at that time.
