The château de Fère-en-Tardenois is an exceptional
place, has been included in the list of historic monuments
1862 and is now carefully maintained by the Aisne departmental
board. The local authority, very active in the restoration
of the cultural heritage, has been the owner of the ruins
for over 20 years now and offers disadvantaged people

the Road of coronations, in 1206, Comte Robert II of Dreux,
grand-son of the King of France Louis VI, acquired the
land Fere, and there erected a fortress.
The Masters of Fere, who succeed one another inside the
castle, have left the imprint of their passage.
In 1539, Anne de Montmorency turns the Fortress into a
Luxury Castle and built in 1560 a Viaduct of Pur Style
Renaissance replacing the medieval bridge.
The castle was dismantled in 1779 to sell the furniture
and materials component.
The building was converted into a Castle Modern in 1863.
This was one of the first castles that have been converted
into a hotel in 1956.
Mandatory precautions !
over 10 years now, the association Viking Classic has
been organizing cars events for which we are used to choose
prestigious sites and domains.
In 2010, the VCA2010 took place in the Château de
Beauregard park in the Touraine region. The owners had
been legitimately fussy about their domain.
The requirements have been the same in the castle of Pray
and the castle of Valmer for the VCR2018. Each time, we
returned the places in perfect conditions and we aim to
do the same in Chateau de Fère.
It is a key point of our engagement towards our hosts
and of our reputation.
To do so, a member of our team will welcome and accompany
you from your arrival to your car place at a snail's pace
(in order to care your car and the environment)
VCA2020 rules and local area land use plans defined by
our logistics manager Philippe Tranchon, will be strictly
applied. Philippe is an architect and is thus very much
concerned by the infrastructure's conservation and by
Each car parked on its place will not be authorised to
move during the exhibition time.
Any movement of a vehicle will lead to a definitive departure.
We encourage you to respect the same safety recommendations
during the ruin's visits. Don't forget to have a watchful
eye on the kids and use systematically the dustbins.
Respect of the castle and good spirit will be the key
words of the day
This unique place, we are proud to welcome
you in, is really worth any precautions and respect required.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation. See you soon
