Castle of Chambord

If you think you have visited imposing castles before, pay attention: All previous experiences will be surpassed by the absolutely magnificent and impressive castle of Chambord. It is a hunting castle from the 16th century and it was built to enable immodest parties and festivities. The castle is in an enormous park with a 32km long wall all around it. You will, quite literally, need a full day to walk from one end of the estate to the other. The police practises horse riding on the lawn at the back of the castle. A magnificent spectacle.
