Compiègne The Essential
Recommended
Initially a royal residence, Compiègne later bore witness to the lavish receptions of the Second Empire. Some will want to relive the past on a tour of the château, an imposing and simply designed imperial palace. Nature lovers and history buffs can enjoy one of the numerous routes that take you through the forest where the armistice was signed in 1918 and again in 1940. Compiègne also boasts an ancient town centre and museums with varied collections.
