We visited this chateau as part of our day tour of the Alsace region without expecting very much of this first stop. What a pleasant surprise ! We really enjoyed the 2 hours spent at this castle - it is a walk and climb up a slight hill to get to the castle but very worth it.

The castle is a medieval castle and is very well preserved - we were told by our guide that a few movies have been shot at this castle. The castle tour is self guided with audio hand held device. There is a small gift shop at the entrance of the castle. As the tour is self guided, you can take your time wandering the castle at your leisure and spend time looking at areas that interest you - no pushy guide rushing you from one room to another !

We visited Neuschwanstein near Munich 2 days before visiting this castle and comparing between the 2 castles - we prefer this castle for the building and Neuschwanstein because of the history of King Ludwig. Right at the top of the castle - you can catch good views of the area.

So if you do happen to be in the Alsace region, do not miss coming to this castle as it is a really nice medieval castle.

Haut-Koenigsbourg was half ruined when Kaiser Wilhelm II decided to throw money at it around the turn of the 19th century. The restoration was done with teutonic thoroughness and kept historically accurate as far as possible. It's a romantic statement of German power to the West of the Rhine, with magnificent views back towards the Fatherland. Ignoring the politics, it's every child's fantasy castle, and most adults' too, so well worth the visit. If only Kaiser Bill had left it at that !

It takes some time to get to the top and the castle but you are then rewarded with a magnificent view over the valley.
