Guided visit of Haut Barr castle

Galerie Photos


Enjoy unrivalled views over the Alsace plain from the Haut-Barr Castle, often called "the Eye of Alsace”. Constructed in 1170, it was transformed and restored during the 14th century. It was built at an altitude of 470 metres on 3 wide rocks linked by a footbridge called the "Devil's Bridge” and a series of staircases, which enabled the Bishops of Strasbourg to watch over the Zorn Valley and the Alsace Plain. With your guide, you will have the opportunity to discover this wonderful castle which has been listed as a historic monument since 1874. On your return journey to the boat, you will stop off at the Chappe Tower, an ancient telegraph, where you'll see an interactive display on the ancestry of all means of telecommunication. Since 1794, France was the first country to have a telecommunications network thanks to Claude Chappe who invented the aerial telegraph. From 1798 to 1852, the station at Saverne helped link Strasbourg to Paris. Return on board.
