A mediaeval castle in ruins since the 12th century, it occupies a strategic position between the Lorraine plateau and the Alsace plain.
The current castle was built in 1583 by Jean de Manderscheid. The rocks’ summit can be reach by stairs. A footbridge called the “Devil’s Bridge” also connects two of them.
