Description: 
  • ‘I’ll show them who’s boss’: that’s what Philip of Alsace had in mind. So he had the imposing castle rebuilt (1180).
  • Overlooking the city from its battlements high up on the keep, one can sense the feeling of wealth and power that the lord of the castle must have had.
  • Thanks to the movie guide, a unique, interactive computer-controlled guide, this remote history really comes to life.
  • On certain weekends, you may even meet some real knights.
