Chateau de Hohbarr (Haut-Barr)

The Chateau de Hohbarr (French: Haut-Barr; German: Burg Hohbarr) is a medieval castle, first built in 1100, It was built 460m up on sandstone rock base. The Peace of Westphalia mandated the destruction of several castles, including Hohbarr, but after the beginning of the War of the Spanish Succession, in 1701, the fortress was back in use. It was abandoned in about 1770, but the vault continued to be occupied until the French Revolution.
