This castle is a ruin, like most castles in this area. But, it offers a really nice walkway on the walls with spectacular views all around. When we were there children could actually climb the walls. There's a small restaurant with limited choice and there are some expositions to go to.

At first we were excited about visiting this castle. But after a steep 15 minute walk up a paved road leading to the castle, our initial excitement quickly turned to disappointment. The castle is not a ruin but has been completely refurbished on the inside which now includes a museum, restaurant, and stage. A large modern visitor’s center selling tickets and souvenirs has been built into the front of the castle at apparently significant cost. The entrance fee is E7 per person. After seeing the crowds and the price, we decided not to go inside. We felt like we were paying for all the modernizations and the visitor’s center. You can shoot some nice photos of the outer walls as you approach the castle by foot. And there are nice views over the countryside from the terrace in front. Also, there are steps just to the right of the entrance building that lead to a medieval garden and more walls. You can go here without paying. The castle was very crowded the day we went. There’s a parking lot off the Route des Cinq Chateaux at the bottom of the hill.

If you plan to travel to Colmar area and interested in historical sites, you can't miss this one. First of all because of its spectacular view and secondly because it's a great restauration of typical medival structure. To have a better understanding of the era, you should take a guided visit. They are made by volunteers passionate by the history of this quadrangular fortress. There is also a very interesting art gallery. You can have a light lunch there with local food well done and a top service.

Strange and attractive. Limited restauration works...even more interesting. A lot of historical information displayed on the walls, but also a permanent exposition to visit. There is equally a brasserie with a terrace inside the castle...just in case that you get hungry. Visit the castle costs 7 euros, largely worth. Parking very close, but limited space, so maybe you will need to drop your car 600 m away.

Park your car somewhere down the road and you will see well-marked trails going up, up and up. Your heart will be beating out of your chest by the time you make it to the top, which is perfect if you are visiting France and gorging on fois gras, cheese and canard. We did this in December and although we worked up a sweat going up, the icy wind at the top nearly froze us. The place was closed anyway but what has been restored since it was blown up by French defenders against an invading Austrian army in the 1600's are mostly the walls. The view can be enjoyed from the entrance without going into the chateau itself, so no worries. An excellent half day hike.
