This weekend we went again close to France to the Alsace and the Northern Vosges to visit the castle ruin Windstein. Actually, these are three ruins of the three castles Neu-, Mittel-, and Altwindstein in a rather small area. The castles are only about 10 minutes away. The castles all date from a period of about 12th century and were mostly finally destroyed in the 16th century. Especially the ruins of Altwindstein are evidence of an extremely complex complex complex with many remains as dug caves in the rock or as remains of masonry around the rocks. Even the well is still present at a considerable depth.
