Castle Ruin Wasigenstein

This time an excursion led again to France to the Alsace in the Northern Vosges. On the plan was the castle ruin Wasigensten. The former castle dates from the 13th century and was actually two castles. A smaller and a larger one. The castle was finally abandoned in the 16th century and almost completely destroyed in the 17th century. Nevertheless, some of its old splendour can still be seen today. On the one hand, it lies in the middle of the forest on a small hill and on the other hand, not everything has been completely destroyed. There are still the main stairs and some rooms that were dug into the rock. There are also remains of other rooms, towers and staircases, which make a visit here extremely worthwhile.
