The Haut-Koenigsbourg castle most certainly had a garden in
the Middle Ages. A medieval garden was therefore created to
complete the castle domain in 2001.
The garden was planted the length of the ramparts, outside the
fortress, with ideal exposition to the sun. Here visitors can
discover the different aspects of gardening in medieval times: the
garden is composed of square planting areas enclosed by low wicker
trellis sections, rose bushes, vegetable plots, medicinal plants,
and a flower garden. Visitors can rest and talk on benches where
couples met in medieval times to make the first contact….
The castle gardens change constantly over the seasons; come
and see for yourself from June through to September!
Haut-Koenigsbourg castle is member of the association "Les
Jardins d'Alsace" (The gardens of Alsace).
