Château du Girsberg is the ruin of a spur castle in the area of Ribeauvillé and was first mentioned in documents in 1288.
Besieged and captured by the Lords of Rappoltstein in a feud in the first quarter of the 15th century, it was abandoned at the beginning of the 16th century and left to decay. The ruin, like the two neighboring castles Hohrappoltstein and Ulrichsburg, has been under monument protection as a classified Monument historique since October 1, 1841.
