The Ottrott Castles

" Stroll around these two medieval castles. Close to Mont Sainte-Odile, they dominate the Alsace plain above the village of Ottrott! "

Two magnificent ruins dominate the Plain of Alsace above the village of Ottrott. Two medieval castles, separated by some ten metres, as if confronting each other: Rathsamhausen and Lutzelbourg. The first has a castle keep that is unique in Alsace and its significant remains give visitors a good understanding of how its inhabitants used to live.

Location and access : From Klingenthal, follow directions to Mont Sainte-Odile, park in the car park at the entrance to the Eichwaeldel residence and then follow the Club Vosgien signposting.
