Check with the castle before you go because the falconry show is not always on the schedule posted on the website.

Very impressive castle that is a must when you are visiting Bouillon. The castle is huge, so make sure to reserve enough time if you want to explore everything. Really loved the bird of prey show...

Beautiful castle. It is quite breathtaking when you first pull into Bouillon from atop the hill on the other side and the castle is right in your view. It was totally unexpected, but a great surprise. We walked around the town and found the stairs to take us up to the castle. We also hiked down the other side. This gave us so many viewpoints for photos - loved it! At night, they run a light festival on the side of the castle. We did not buy tickets to go inside for that, but if there again would definitely do. We did watch a bit from town and it was still a good show.
Great place to visit. When we were there, a medieval festival was going on with food and games. Really fun! The town itself is great as well with a beautiful castle on top
Beautiful medieval castle with interesting history. You can walk around and discover things on your own, and the guides are written in many languages. Low priced tickets. Wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. The town itself is picturesque and has many shops and bakeries. Shop in the morning, as most shops close at lunch time, at least in winter. And wear good hiking shoes to the castle.
Very nice and big castle in bouillon. Easy to get to. There was a bird show as well as a small art exhibition. When you buy a ticket it also includes entrance to the museum, the archeological museum and the illuminations. Plenty of parking around the city. Most areas of the castle are not wheelchair accessible.
Superb castle with an amazing view of the city. Theticket price does not worth the value but if you don't mind spending 13 euro on historical things it's worth visiting. They have group discount and students discount...
