In Guédelon 50 craftsworkers are building a castle only with abidance by the XIIIth century.
To visit Guédelon is like a journey into history, because in the forest of Saint-Sauveur a castle will be build. But not the way we are used to. 50 craftsworkers are building a castle with abidance by the XIIIth century techniques in the middle of the forest, in a natural site which provides them with every building material: water, stone, earth, sand and wood. In Guédelon, there is no excavator, no drill, no electricity an no internal combustion engine in use. Around 2025 they want to finish this unbelievable project. Reinhard Kungel and his team is joining Guédelon since 1999.
