Hike to a castle on a path to happiness
There are hundreds of castles in Alsace, all throughout the region, and you can get to all of them along marked walking paths. Some castles are perched high above the trees, visible from the start of the trail. For others, you'll have to walk all the way to the end, around a final bend, to finally see the castle's silhouette. Follow the different paths through forests, along vineyards, up streams, or on the edge of green pastures. When you finally arrive at the castle, it's with a wonderful sense of achievement.
Experience the history of the Middle Ages at Fleckenstein Castle
The outer wall of this impressive fortress rises above the treetops. Wheel tracks mark the thousand-year-old stones on the ground. Without a doubt, Fleckenstein Castle is a panoramic dive into history.
The visit takes you up steep stairs and across metal walkways, with a treasure hunt for children along the way. At the top of the castle, a spectacular and exhilarating panorama awaits. Lose your gaze in the thick wooded coat covering the hills of the Northern Vosges. What a strange feeling to think that our medieval ancestors admired these same landscapes.
Raise your glass at the gates of Kaysersberg Castle
There’s a very festive spirit indeed on this walk towards Kaysersberg Castle, maybe because there's a Grand Cru wine tasting on arrival. The walk starts in the village with a leisurely climb up the hundred or so steps to the castle. As you climb higher and higher, the landscapes become denser and stir up emotions. Perhaps it is the effect of the rising altitude combined with the beauty of the site? At the foot of the medieval castle, it's time for your exquisite tasting. The stunning panorama elevates the flavours in the glass.
