Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg

Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg

Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg was constructed in the 12th century in the Vosges mountains overlooking a strategic location over Alsatian plain. After sustaining substantial destruction after 52 day Swedish siege during Thirty Years' War it was abandoned. The castle was rebuild on the orders of German Emperor Wilhelm II between 1900 and 1908. However after World War I the Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg along with the region was taken by France.
