    The chapel inside the fortification was built in the 19th century on the foundations of the keep. A famous personality, Bruno von Egisheim, saw the light of day in this castle on 21 June 1002. This chapel was consecrated to him, since he later became Pope under the name Leo IX (1049-1054). A beautifully painted chapel, which gives an idea of ​​how churches looked in the Middle Ages. Absolutely worth seeing!
