Hiking Highlight (Segment)
This hiking highlight (section) also points to a tour through the fortress moat. One round is recommended. In addition to some benches, the well-preserved ramparts are visible. Only the foundations of the towers are visible, as they were blown up by the French in 1689. In winter and when it is wet, the moat can be uncomfortably cold and damp compared to the surrounding area.
