Really loved this castle. They were doing renovations while I was there, so part of the castle was hidden behind the scaffolds, but still it looks beautiful. The interior also looks very nice, and you have amazing views on the surrounding area.More

This castle is a must see if you are in the Alsace region. We couldn't believe how cheap the entrance fee was for this stunning place. It also has fantastic views of the surrounding countryside, so you will get some great photos. The castle itself...More

The castle is placed on top of mountain and view from here is not less than amazing, like castle itself. Everything is authentic starting from cannons, cold weapons, furniture, walls and till small thinks like door locks.
