Your arrival will be easier if you have bought your tickets in advance. In effect, the ticket office is up a ramp that is inaccessible for those with reduced mobility. Therefore, we advise you to do the following :
ADAPTED CHÂTEAU ACCESS FOR VISITORS WITH PHYSICAL DISABILITIES: PORTE DES LIONS, RUE AUGUSTIN THIERRY, 37400, AMBOISE GPS: N.47.413144 / E.O. 988904
Use the intercom, situated in front of the entrance gate, to communicate with the reception team. Our caretaker will help you access the specially designated parking area, which is close to the Royal Loggia.
You can access the ticket office, audio/video guides desk and the shop via the lift on the terraces, as shown on the map that is available to download below.
You can access the ground floor of the loggia from the courtyard. The 1st floor can be accessed from the garden (mezzanine) via a straight staircase with only a few steps that can be crossed using a foldaway ramp. Due to the spiral staircases, there is no access to the (19th century) 2nd floor for wheelchair users. However, the entire visitor route can nevertheless be viewed. The video-guide, available at the entrance, enables visitors to see all the loggia's inaccessible areas (St. Hubert Chapel, 2nd floor and the Minimes Tower). Audio and video (2nd floor) guide available in French and English.
The security staff will guide you and facilitate your visit to the loggia.
It is possible to move around the terraces and in the gardens thanks to the "gentle walk" shown on the reverse of the visitor guide and in the attached document.
Visitors with reduced mobility must be accompanied by an able-bodied person - the latter's presence is imperative for negotiating the inclines and sloping gravel pathways in the gardens.
