On the hill, not over

Chateau Haut Koenigsbourg in Alsace, really an attraction,
both outside an inside – magically located on the top of the hills
In comfortable reach from home by mountain bike.
History and stories on a long row for the curious.
Located in the Vosges mountains just west of Sélestat,
situated in a strategic area on a rocky spur overlooking the Upper Rhine Plain.
This castle was built by swiss noble family in the 12th century.
Since then it has had a key strategic position in the area.
Been invaded by changing powers countless times – now mostly by tourists.
