Castle of Wineck

" Picturesque, fascinating and noble - these are the remains of the Wineck. A photographer's paradise with breathtaking views, come and discover it as you stroll through the vineyards. "

On the heights of Katzenthal stands the Château du Wineck, a historic monument built around 1200, in the 13th century, on a rocky spur.

It stands at an altitude of 330 metres and is nicknamed "the castle of the vines" because of the surrounding vineyards. A 20-metre keep is also part of this fortified castle, which today houses a small museum. The museum is open from 1st April to 1st November, on Sundays and public holidays from 2 pm to 6 pm and, depending on the weather, on request for groups of up to 10 people (French and German). Reservations required on 03 89 47 85 63.

From here, you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of part of the Alsace wine route and typical Alsatian villages.
