I've stayed in Saint-Germain-en-Laye more than once and love this town a quick ride to the west of Paris, and easily accessible by train. Although overshadowed by Versailles, 20-30 minutes away, the Chateau de St. Germain is beautiful in its own right and offers a bonus, as it is home today to the French National Archeology Museum, wth precious antiquities... 更多
Went to see the Merovingen gallery on Sunday 11 Dec - it was closed Phoned museum today (Monday) and was assured it was open this afternoon - took a taxi from Paris at great expense, to be told at the ticket desk it was closed.

While I did not have the chance to go inside the castle, our Sunday stroll across the garden was just perfect. The gardens are beautiful and well kept and they give you an amazing view of the city of Paris. The town looks lovely as well.

The castle lies in the city. It has beautiful gardens in which you have free entrance. Walking,jogging,biking, sitting or just relaxing everything is possible.
Why hesitate? I assure you that you will spend most delightful day in the town of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, walking along its many narrow, winding and pedestrian-only streets. And visiting the town’s National Museum of Archaeology - le Musée d’Archéologie National - and its park. The museum is in the chateau. The town is 19 kms (13 miles) west of Paris. It... 更多
