Chateau de Hohenstein

Constructed at the start of the 13th century, the site spreads over a rocky outcrop at an altitude of 444 m. The castle was built by the Hohenstein family and the Bishop of Strasbourg was one of the joint owners at the end of the 13th century.

Bishop Berthold de Bucheck was imprisoned in the castle in 1337 by Rodolphe de Hohenstein. On his release, the bishop (1338) destroyed the castle which did not recover from its ruin.
