I have heard of a castle with a multiple layered dungeon 'available' for touring. Possibly France but that is all the info I have. Will be visiting Europe in three months and trying to select a castle or two to visit.

If you go to the north of France, try Chateau Bouillon on the border between Belgium and France. It is a very impressive ruin standing on a cliff overlooking a river. It is open to the public and has extensive underground rooms that you can explore. It was the home of a famous crusader, Godfrey de Bouillon.

For a 'dungeon' with very large but also very dark rooms underground, visit the largest ruin in southern Germany, the castle Hohentwiel near Singen (Baden-Würtemberg). It's placed on the top of an old volcano (no joke!), like other castles in the same area (Hohenkrähen, Hohenstoffeln, Hohenhewen). For some pictures, see at

Just more and better pictures of castle Hohentwiel. Have a look down in the 'dungeon' at
(as I remember, it's much darker in reality).
Best site with a lot of information (in german) is

The castle at Loches has dungeons on several levels. Loches is about 35 km south east of Tours. Well worth a visit.

The Chateau de Miolans (about 15 km due east of Chambery) also has a dungeon that can be visited.
