  • 1 Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg (Haut Koenigbourg Castle), Orschwiller (14 km west of Sélestat via the D159), +33 3 69 33 25 00. 9:15am to 5:15pm. Medieval castle situated in a strategic location on a rocky spur overlooking the Upper Rhine Plain. This castle is a reconstructed (late 1800s) 15th century castle. The castle was sieged and demolished in 1630. It sat for 250 years or so, then was rebuilt a little over a hundred years ago. And awesome reconstruction overall. However, there is nothing like an original castle to visit. Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg (Q1552366) on Wikidata Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg on Wikipedia
