European Museum Night

La Nuit Européenne des Musées - Klaus Stöber - Haut-Koenigsbourg castle, Alsace, France

Tour description

On the occasion of this new edition of the Night of the Museums, Haut-Koenigsbourg castle opens its doors in the evening.

Discover the monument during this free nocturnal opening, hosted by the Alsatiae Protectores company and its costumed members.

You will discover the monument, magnified by nightfall and night lighting. You can enjoy the place, at your own pace, during a self guided and free visit.

A strong attendance is expected.

For more tranquillity, take advantage of the line 500 shuttle service between Sélestat and the castle, or opt for a more sporty visit by taking one of the signposted hiking trails around the massif. We have a limited number of parking spaces due to the configuration of our site.

The shuttle bus will be free on Museum Night.
