  • This castle requires a little work to get to but it is nice. All that is left is the outside walls but you can see why the built it here. You can see for miles.  more »
  • This is such an authentic castle, with a great view over Scherwiller and its wide surroundings, the Black Forest in Germany in the background. You can "feel" the Rhine flowing hallway the horizon...  more »
  • This Chateau is a ruin but one that has quite some structure left. It's nice to walk through it and imagine how it would have been to live here so many years ago. Not a lot of information or special features to see but the views are great. Tip: take the beautiful walkway through the forest and reward your climb with a visit to Chateau l'Ortenbourg.
  • I love this place. The ruins are a sight to see and climb around. I'd gladly take the small walk up the mountain again to go here. It's not a hard climb, and great on a summer day. Highly recommend you visit this place. Simply beautiful!
