For an escape to Montluçon, make one of our 3-star Kyriad hotels in Allier your base. This will make it easy for you to access to historic city center and all it treasures. Discover the medieval heart of the city by wandering among half-timbered houses and local boutiques. Climb all the way up to the Chateau des Ducs de Bourbon. Perched upon a promontory, it offers a breathtaking panorama of the whole region. Another Montluçon must, the MuPop, the museum of pop music, welcomes you for a melodious tour. Musical instruments, broadcast apparatus, stage costumes and more, will delight both your ears and your eyes.
A one-week stay is ideal for properly exploring Montluçon. What’s next on the list after an excursion to the Château des ducs de Bourbon, a tour of the old center and a visit to the MuPop? Check out the Church of Notre-Dame and the Church of Saint-Pierre. Remarkable sculptures are housed inside. Then set out for Hérisson to travel back in time. On the way to this medieval town, make a detour at the Berry Canal Museum, where you’ll learn about the lives of the bargemen and lock operators.
