Tips

  • Matthias Brandt

    There are still extensive ruins. So are still the (not walkable) residential tower of the upper castle with the shield wall and building remains of the lower castle. In contrast to the Vieux Windstein, this castle is still easy to visit.

    Very beautiful ruin with stunning views.
    Inside the castle, you can climb over newly installed metal stairs. However, those who are not free of heights should not look down ... the floors are made of metal mesh and therefore you can see through them.

    Neu-Windstein is worth a visit together with the old-Windstein.This short tour to old and new windstone should be combined with a visit to one or more of the following castle ruins:
    Chateau Schoeneck and Wineck
    Chateau Hohenfels (Dambacher Castle)
    Watchtower and Klein-Arnsberg ruins
    Ruin Luetzelhardt
    So you can visit several castle ruins comfortably in one day.

    Beautiful castle ruin, from whose top one has a wonderful view over the Alsace.

    With the exception of a few bricks, almost nothing remains of this castle
