During our drive from Strasbourg to Colmer we spotted no less than 15 castles along the way. Some were huge and others were in ruins, but they were castles nonetheless and I couldn't wait to explore them!
The first castle we visited was the Chateau du Haut-Koeningsbourg which sits atop a hill overlooking the Alcatian plain. It is unknown when this castle was first built, but the first mention of it was in 1147.
Here is the entrance to the castle:

Tarte flambée is an Alsatian dish composed of thin bread dough rolled out in a rectangle (traditionally) or a circle, which is covered with crème fraîche, thinly sliced raw onions, andlardons. It is one of the most famous gastronomical specialties of the region.
