Haut-Konigsbourg CastleA must-see in Alsace

This fortress high in the Vosges Mountains overlooks the plain of Alsace, which it once watched over. Built in the 12th century, this castle has an eventful history and has been looted and burned down several times. In the 19th century, Kaiser Wilhelm II decided to restore the castle to its former glory and launched a major restoration project, giving us an idea of daily life in a medieval fortress.
