Chateau de Kagenfels reviews
Then the small walk of access to the castle is friendly, pleasant and not too hard for our little pieces of cabbage not sporting... 😉 Arrived at the first of the Castle, that a desire to see it closer to discover it but unfortunately not yet access due to renovation works!! But look forward to hearing the volunteers tell us that the access is open in order to discover it from the inside!! I recommend all the same for nature lovers for a nice stroll within the Alsatian forest 😉
Remarkable ruin, guided tour of the interesting strong site! Thanks to the volunteers, their explanations plunges us into the mysteries and the complex history of this place, to the delight of our imagination. Finally, scenery and landscapes are worth the detour
