The Château Saint-Ulrich (530 m) is the largest and best preserved of the three castles of Ribeauvillé. The château was built around the middle of the 13th century on a promontory and was successively enlarged, of which the most striking is the extension of a wing, consisting of two large rooms arranged one above the other and a double row of 7 semicircular semicircular windows at the side are illuminated.

Ortisei is the best preserved and the most impressive of the three castle ruins. From here and also from the slightly lower castle Girsberg you have a fantastic view. The castle Hohrappoltstein is another 100 meters higher. Lt. a sign is forbidden to enter the ruin, however, on 01.10.2017 the gate was open and some visitors have ventured despite the warning on the tower.
The castle ruins are a popular destination. Even during the week there was a lot going on here in moderate weather. Therefore, if possible do not visit on weekends and "The early bird catches the worm." :)
