The castle in festive costume

Each December, the Haut-Koenigsbourg Castle pulls a whole range of activities from its Christmas stocking to rediscover the traditions of their ancestors.

Christmas exhibition and attractions
In the month of December the whole château will be bedecked in Christmas colours. With little touches, decor items, sound-scapes and thematic exhibitions, the history of Christmas and its customs in the region down the centuries are illustrated.
Christmas trees decorated with apples and communion wafers like in the Middle Ages, golden lights and the fragrances of old, a Medieval-looking Advent calendar, scents of gingerbread set the scene to be discovered during the course of the tour. To crown it all, the Emperor William II is expected: the table has been set, the Christmas tree has been decorated and the great hall is ready for an imaginary feast.

« Wonderful »
This year the tour ends with an unprecedented artistic creation!
A call for proposals put out at the start of 2014 is inviting an artist to provide his own take on the world of fantasy.Very prevalent in the Middle Ages, this theme is also closely associated with the Christmas period. So it's no surprise that the idea has been taken on board at the château du Haut-Koenigsbourg.
For a whole month the upper garden of the fortress has been fully devoted to this theme.

Practical information

Every day in December 2014.
