Tour description

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 classroom.


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.

Hours of departure are defined during the reservation.
