Alsace. Bergheim and Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg

Bergheim is mostly famous for its witch trials in the past. There is a museum about it but unfortunately it is opened only in the afternoons and we were in Bergheim in the morning. Just reading about it is already fascinating...

Bergheim is quite small but charming and there are less tourists compared to the other surrounding villages.

From Bergheim we continued to Saint-Hippolyte to see the festival of new wine. It was a village festival with some folk music but nothing too spectacular. From there we hiked to the castle of Haut-Koeningsbourg. It's quite a lot of going uphill and you feel really glad when you finally reach there. Going down is much easier. The castle itself is quite big and as it's located on a hill you can see quite far. And now some photos:
