French Ardennes launches 2018 Tourist Pass

The French Ardennes has launched a Tourist Pass, giving visitors to this region of France an opportunity to visit up to 10 of its leading tourist attractions for the price of five.


Holiday makers can collect a Tourist Pass from the first attraction they visit, where they will be charged the full entry price.  Their visit to the next attraction in the scheme will then be free-of-charge.  Anyone able to visit all 10 attractions will benefit from a €36.50 (around £32) saving.


Admission fees for each site is shown on the Tourist Pass, and online. The passport-style Tourist Pass contains a box for each attraction, which will be stamped on entry.


The attractions involved in the scheme are spread across a large area of The French Ardennes, and reflect the nature of this particular area of France.


Forever linked with one of the greatest French poets, Arthur Rimbaud, both the Musée Arthur Rimbaud and the Maison des Ailleurs in Charleville-Mézières are included in the scheme – as well as the Musée Verlaine in Juniville. Another attraction in Charleville-Mézières is the Musée de l’Ardenne.


The French Ardennes’ rich industrial heritage, meanwhile, is featured at the Domaine de Vendresse in Vendresse, and Musée de la Metallurgie Ardenaise in Bogny-sur-Meuse.


Northern Europe’s largest fortress Château Fort de Sedan in Sedan, and the wildlife attraction featuring a growing Wolf Park, Parc Argonne Découverte in Olizy Primat, are also featured in the Tourist Pass.


The eclectic Atelier-Musée du Fuetre (Museum of Felt) in Mouzon, and the historic Slate Mining Village in Rimogne, Maison de l’Ardoise, complete the line-up for 2018.
