This smallish "castle" in the countryside of Alsace has the most beautiful vista view in the area. From the top of the Chateau you can see Germany, Colmar and many small villages around the area. We wondered through some beautiful forests to get there and...More

I feel sure this castle is worth the drive and the walk when it is open. I am sure the restaurant/cafe is lovely but We never found out. The signs at the foot of the hill clearly stated it opened at ten but on arrival...More

Fantastic views from here and plenty to see in the partially restored castle. Interesting history. The temporary exhibition of photos was very good.

Walked here as part of the 'Five Chateaux' route. Chateau very interesting but it was very expensive to enter (I concur with some of the previous comments). Definitely worth visiting but beware of the cost.

A real trip to the middle age in a typical squarred formed fortress which is unique in its style worldwide. Reconstruction was mostly sponsored by the community and in summer you can enjoy medieval days and evening including menus in the restaurant. Go enjoy and...More

You feel like you are in the medieval age. It's view is amazing and it's fun to walk through the castle and explore it and its grounds. Worth a trip up the curvy road.

Our arrempts to get to this château this morning were rather comic and then we found it closed for renovations! Apparently it will not re-open until 2013.
