House of the Castles of the Northern Vosges - Obersteinbach

Their names conjure up stones, mountains, rocks, families. They all established their power on impressive rock bases, they all enhanced their architecture with sandstone. Sentinels on the lookout, they watched over plains and passages and protected possessions and subjects. Hosts whenever necessary, they took in tired and hungry travelers. Yes, you guessed right, they are the stone castles built in the Northern Vosges in the 12th century and later. Tried by fighting, worn out by wind, rain and cold, the ruins, some thirty of them, still reign on the mountain-tops. Arrogant or nostalgic, they delight hikers attracted by towers and curtains, offensive or defensive actions, legends and romantism. They have their Residence In Obersteinbach.
