Castle ruin Fleckenstein, P´tit Fleck/F

Fleckenstein castle is located directly at the German border to Alsace. It belongs to the group of typical rock castles of the Wasgauregion. The castle was presumably built at the beginning of the 12th century on a 43 metres high and 8 metres wide sandstone cliff that is part of the castle complex. From 1129 to 1720, the castle was the ancestral home of the Fleckenstein family. In 1680, French troops burned the fortification down. It has not been rebuilt ever since. There are numerous interesting rock hewn passages and chambers in this castle.
