Description of Château de Guirbaden

 

Château du Guirbaden Map

Château de Guirbaden was found in the early 11th century, but over several years it changed hands repeatedly. New additions were made over a period of 500 years. Today the castle lies largely in ruins that remotely represent its former grandeur. Closest modern settlement is village of Mollkirch on the left bank of the Magel River.
