Tips

  • Martl

    The castle is ingeniously built in and around a high sandstone spur. Many remains of the wall can still be seen here. The architectural style and engraved dates suggest different epochs. The view from the highest point is impressive. Two panels explain the panorama. In this respect, this castle far surpasses the much more extensive but also lower-lying area of Fleckenstein Castle.

  • Well-preserved castle with a beautiful view of Fleckenstein Castle and, in the other direction, of Wegelnburg.

  • The Hohenbourg lives up to its name.
    With 551 vertical meters, it allows great views of the surrounding area.
    A tip from a friend: A full moon night in clear weather on the Hohenbourg you never forget!

  • Located in the immediate vicinity of the Wegelnburg and the Löwenstein ruins, it is also worth taking a look at the details of the masonry on the Hohenbourg that are still recognizable. Much of the 16th-century Ranaissance-style decoration can still be seen.

  • Above the Fleckenstein castle ruins on the 550 meter high Schlossberg. Built at the beginning of the 13th century by the old Alsatian family of Puller, later changing owners. Destroyed in 1680. Worth seeing : Castle ruins and sculpture fragments from the 13th and 16th centuries. (Source: Tourisme Alsace)

  • Surprisingly well-preserved castle, which marks the second part of the local castle series. Again, the view is very good. On the tower, there is a circular "shield" on which all the surrounding castles are located. Nice detour for every way.

  • Reasonably well-preserved forecourt - this makes the approach interesting. The viewing platform is quite small and accessible by steep stairs.
    Since the view is phenomenal and there is also an all-round orientation board, you should make the journey (and possibly wait).
