Sélestat is in the middle of Alsace. It is home to the humanist library. Nearby is the deer reserve with unusual wildlife.
phone: +33 3 69 33 25 00address: OrschwillerMedieval castle situated in a strategic location on a rocky spur overlooking the Upper Rhine Plain. This castle is a reconstructed (late 1800s) 15th century castle. The castle was sieged and demolished in 1630. It sat for 250 years or so, then was rebuilt a little over a hundred years ago. And awesome reconstruction overall. However, there is nothing like an original castle to visit.
