" 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.
