Discover the castle of Guirbaden

Discover the ruins of the biggest castle in Alsace, built between the 10th and 13th century.

Live a unique experience in Alsace! Escape from your everyday life and come and discover the fortified castles of Alsace... Throughout the year, the volunteers of the preservation associations share with you what you only share with friends in a friendly atmosphere! During one day, help them to save from danger these stone sentinels who have been watching over the plain of Alsace for centuries.

The association "Sauver le Guirbaden", founded in April 2015, has set itself the task of safeguarding and developing the ruins of the largest castle in Alsace with the support of its owner and the commune of Mollkirch. Building sites are organised throughout the year according to a predefined schedule.

After a personalized visit by the volunteers who will accompany you throughout the day, the activities will be presented to you (according to the program) and then you will be able to lay "your" stone!

No specific skills or knowledge are required, only your motivation counts!

Visits can be cancelled depending on the weather (check with the association).
