Château de Frœnsbourg is a abandoned french castle ruin
north west of the town of Lembach, inside the Bas-Rhin département.
Bas-Rhin, it’s one of two departments in the alsatian region of France.
The name means “Lower Rhine” – Haut-Rhin which means “Higher Rhine” is the other.
The inhabitants of the department are known as Bas-Rhinois or Bas-Rhinoises.
The main city of the Bas-Rhin is Strasbourg.
Amazing architectural structure built into the side of a mountain cliff
the castle havde been known for about 800 years
using caves as connecting halls – simply adapted to the nature, brilliant creativity.
Stairs are now set up to give the opportunity to experience it (safely) at close range.
Most of all so it looks a bit like a huge mansion-like stay for termites after all these years.
With a big smile this walkway could be called “Le Pont Nouveau”.
View from the walkway – there are several meters down.
There were no photographers here and don’t tell to anybody
after a hot day’s hike with backpack
it’s tempting to throw all the clothes and jump in the lovely cool water here
on the way down to civilization again.
My inspiration comes from wonderful “Restlessjo” too and her “Monday walk” themes
this area call for a visit and is perfect for inspiring walking a part was biking.
