Wonderful fairy tale castle with interesting history. The castle was built between 1180 and 1190 by Duke Berthold V of Zähringen, There are many artifacts and historical things. One plus is a banner taken from the Burgundian wars around 1470.

The castle with its heavy walls is impressive to discover and also to see how some of the old building with its upgrades, historical and new, have earned their keep into the future: the former High Court is now an insurance office, and the former...More
