Accessibility of the citadel


The citadel has a car park with 300 spaces for cars and buses. Access is from the Rue des Tilleuls, following the "Citadelle" sign at the central roundabout.

 The citadel car park also has a motor home area, with all the comforts needed for a short stopover in Bitche: drinking water and electricity supply points and waste disposal. The 5 shaded and stabilised pitches ensure privacy and security.

 Access for people with reduced mobility

ADEQUAT_HANDICAP_ACCESSIBILITE_PICTOGRAMME_FAUTEUIL_SIGNALETIQUE Due to a large number of steps, the underground tour is inaccessible to wheelchair users and difficult for people with reduced mobility. The entire upper level, with the exception of the chapel, is accessible.

 The access ramp is relatively steep (15%) and paved, making it difficult to use for a person with reduced mobility or in a wheelchair. On request by telephone, it is possible to drive up to the entrance gate (possibility of parking a car nearby). For the ascent to the stage, we can drive the person with reduced mobility. Please let us know in advance by calling +33 3 87 96 18 82.


 The underground film trail has many steps, making it difficult for pushchairs to access.


 Dogs are not allowed to enter the underground passages, even on a lead, with the exception of guide dogs and service animals. Access to the upper plateau is allowed to dogs on a lead.
