Why is it so special? I'm not sure but some castles satisfy the little child part of us which refuses to go away as we get older and some castles don't. Since it is an emotional and not a logical reaction, there is probably little point trying to explain it - but this castle hits that spot.
There are long, low, dark passages interspersed with spiral stairways, battlements and towers.
I probably went up more steps than was a good idea for me but I think I should do it again. This is magic.

Address: Chateau Fort, Bouillon
We made a walk in the neighbourhood of Bouillon, and passed through the town of Frahan (population: 74, according to Wikipedia )

Visit the castle of Godfrey of Bouillon (c. 1060 – 18 July 1100), who joined the Holy Crusade and became King of Jerusalem. That's me wearing silly pants and no matching T-shirt.

Why not visiting the castle of the first king of Jerusalem ?
Go in winter !!
It is cold, windy, dark and humid !
It gives a clear picture of what was "la vie de chateau" in the middle-age.
