After climbing for nearly 40 minutes you have a nice view on the neigborhood. This is really something you should do. The castles (with the Ulric castle) are really impressive.

Chateau Girsberg is one of the 3 castle remains and is easy to reach by foot from Ribeauvillé. At the beginning of the walk, the view on the vineyard is quite attractive, but as you climb up in the forest, the view on the region...More
