Castle, Landsberg, Alsace

The castle was built between 1197 and 1200 by Conrad of Landsberg to protect the Abbeys of Hohenbourg, Niedermunster and Andlau, and to serve as a refuge in case of danger at Niedernai Castle. The fine Romanesque gemel windows of the palace and the oriel window in the castle chapel, give the whole a great elegance.

The castle is thought to have been destroyed by the Swedes in 1632.

The photo shows the ruins of the main living quarter with chapel oriel.
