Situated about 56 miles east-northeast of Paris, Chateau Thierry in the Aisene department of France is home to many interesting monuments including a castle. The birthplace of famous author Jean de la Fontaine, who is renowned for his fables, Chateau Thierry oozes relaxing atmosphere and offers scenic spots along the Marne River.
Despite its small size, the town has a fair share of sights to keep tourists busy. The Fontain Museum offers a journey down memory lane to the time when Jean de la Fontaine was alive. Look through original manuscripts written by Fontaine when he lived in the little town of Chateau Thierry.
History buffs can widen their perspectives at the WWI Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial, located to the west of Chateau Thierry. Close to the cemetery is the site of the WWI Battle of Belleau Woods, an important site in the city that commemorates the lives lost in the battle including 1,800 American soldiers.
For wonderful views overlooking the town, head to the American-French Friendship Monument while there are several churches scattered in the city for those interested in old architecture. Outside the city are many champagne vineyards that are worth a visit if you are into idyllic sceneries.
Even though Chateau Thierry has its own train station serving Paris, many visitors choose to arrive by hire car. The Aisne department has excellent roads and is less than an hour away from Paris by rental car. We guarantee the cheapest Chateau Thierry car hire rates on the market.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.
