Beautiful place, good wine and a 1860 castle. I got a gift card from work for one night & breakfast for 2 people in a castle. Seemed a good deal, but in the morning it cost us 2000 kr extra, included in the "deal" for mandatory purchase for 3 courses & 3 wine taste. Food was ok and 2 wines were great. I'm not a sommelier. The room could be better. Understanding it is a castle, but the room had no noise insulation. Not so much for the strange noises during the night, but the morning we heard the other guests clear and loud while they were going to have breakfast. Some cracks on the ceiling and a odd wallpaper didn't help a feeling of balanced price/quality. Good stuff!

Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg

The Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg is situated in a strategic area on a rocky spur overlooking the Upper Rhine Plain, it was used by successive powers from the Middle Ages until the Thirty Years' War when it was abandoned. From 1900 to 1908 it was rebuilt at the behest of the German kaiser Wilhelm II. Today it is a major tourist site, attracting more than 500,000 visitors a year.

The first records of a castle built by the Hohenstaufens date back to 1147. The fortress changed its name to Koenigsburg (royal castle) around 1157. The castle was handed over to the Tiersteins by the Habsburgs following its destruction in 1462. They rebuilt and enlarged it, installing a defensive system designed to withstand artillery fire.

The fortification work accomplished over the 15th century did not suffice to keep the Swedish artillery at bay during the Thirty Years War, and the defences were overrun.
