How do I get there?


The Flying Castle is the Château des Rubins - Observatoire des Alpes which is transported to your home, for you!

The Flying Castle, what is it?
A pinch of history and science: discover gestures and know-how on the theme of the Mountain. The magic formula of mediators-enchanters? Their expertise, their treasure chests, their models and their energy... The Flying Castle is a bit like hosting an episode of "It's not rocket science" in your home!

The Rubinoteam, the château's mediation team, offers two options for the Flying Castle (to be discovered in more detail in our flyer: Flying Castle):

- Interactive animations for major events:
A range of family entertainment, dynamic and effervescent with
manipulation of objects and materials to (re)discover the mountain.
Duration: 2 times the same animation of 30 min on a slot of 1h30.
Capacity: 30-40 people per sequence of 30 min.

- Manual workshops for small groups:
A wide range of fun and original workshops, including a large practical part, discovery of techniques, experiments and creations from materials and tools.
Duration: 1h30
Capacity: 12 people

Who is it for ?
From 5 to 105 years old: there is something for everyone! Animations designed for both adults and children or for audiences unable to move. They can be organized by a municipality, a tourist office, an association, an outdoor center, a holiday center, a hotel, a campsite, a nursing home or an individual for a family event...
