So many castles to visit in Alsace!This 12th century castle overlooks the town of Heiligenstein. It is thought to have mainly been used as a fortress and took nearly 300 years to build. The lands of Alsace are brimming with historical treasures!
The castle was built between 1197 and 1200 by Conrad of Landsberg to protect the Abbeys of Hohenbourg, Niedermunster and Andlau, and to serve as a refuge in case of danger at Niedernai Castle.
The fine Romanesque gemel windows of the palace and the oriel window in the castle chapel, give the whole a great elegance.
The castle is thought to have been destroyed by the Swedes in 1632.
