“Nicely restored old castle, with lots of activity”

Chateau du Hohlandsbourg
Ranked #3 of 27 things to do in Eguisheim
Attraction details
Reviewed October 11, 2013

The winding and narrow road leading up to the medieval castle is already atmospheric, going through dark forest. The chateau is not of the largest of its style, but it has a magnificent 360 o
view of the river plain, the city of Colmar to the east, and the mountains surrounding it. Medieval banquets, jousting and other spectacles take place during the summer, guided tour can be had on the 20 m high walls and inside the courtyard. There is a restaurant, and a small museum, something of interest for the whole family.

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 if you have kids, you will have made their day ...

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.
