& activities

In the heart of the Audomarois region, the Najeti Hôtel Château Tilques opens its doors to you for a stay between nature, culture and discovery. Take advantage of the leisure facilities at Château Tilques, its heated indoor swimming pool, tennis court and bowling green.

From our hotel, explore the medieval city of Saint Omer, which is home to an exceptional heritage. The Notre-Dame de Saint-Omer cathedral, the motte castrale prison, the remains of the Saint-Bertin abbey, but also an Italian-style theatre hidden within the Hôtel de Ville... Saint-Omer is full of historical and architectural treasures!

Another must-see, of course, is the famous Audomarois marshland: the last cultivated marshland in France, which produces a summer cauliflower to enjoy with a local beer.

Between the typical railcar of the 1950s, the steam locomotive, the remains of the Second World War, the golf course in the Aa valley and even the planetarium, there is no shortage of activities for your stay in Saint Omer.

The town of Saint-Omer invites you to stroll through its cobbled streets, witness to its medieval history, just a stone's throw from the Hôtel Château Tilques.

The town, classified as a Town of Art and History, can be discovered through its historical and religious monuments, from the remains of its abbey to its superb cathedral, which houses a painting by the painter Rubens, "The Descent from the Cross".

Saint-Omer is also known for its magnificent French-style public gardens, the work of the architect Guinoiseau, but also for its unmissable marshland. The latter can be discovered on foot, by bike or by boat, to the rhythm of its small islands and large ponds.

Dive into history and discover the hidden side of the conquest of space by visiting the World War II Museum, 5 km from the town of Saint-Omer.

The museum is housed in the Coupole, a huge bunker built by the Todt Organisation in 1943-1944, which was to be the base for launching the V2 rockets against London. Two tours take you on a discovery of the V2 rockets and man's first steps on the moon, or retrace the great periods of the Occupation.
