Humanist Library of Sélestat, considered a national treasure of Alsace
Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg
  • Saint-Georges church.
  • 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.    
  • 2 Château Kintzheim, Kintzheim (7 km west of Sélestat via the D424 and D159). Small ruined castle built around a cylindrical refuge-tower. Converted into an aviary for birds of prey.
  • 3 Château du Bernstein, Dambach-la-Ville (12 km north-west of Sélestat via the D35). Open 24 hours. Ruined castle, among the oldest in Alsace. Free.
