Thanks to the restoration of the château du Haut-Koenigsbourg at
the beginning of the 20th century, students have a
ready-made teaching tool which will enable them to better
understand life in a medieval mountain fortress. The heritage
workshop programme is divided between time spent visiting the
castle and more 'in-depth' and 'hands-on' activities in the on-site
The aim of this workshop is to discover how people built and
defended castles in the Middle Ages. How was the castle site
chosen, where did the building materials come from and what tools
were used to construct the castle walls are some of the topics that
the children will explore with the help of artefacts that they can
handle. In the second part of the workshop, a combination of
story-telling and artefact-handling will enable the children to
learn about the role of knights, the values that they upheld and
the weapons they used.
