Welcome to the Hohlandsbourg castle

depliant 22The castle is actually closed for the winter period.

Once a fortress, today a place of leisure and discovery, the Hohlandsbourg castle offers you the opportunity to explore this place steeped in history through numerous activities.

Women of the middle ages : this year, dames and damsels are in the spotlight.
Powerful women, valiant women, women in their daily lives, women in troubadour literature, courtly love, idealised ladies and demonised witches... explore the place of women through our many shows and
workshops - they were anything but confined to the kitchen!

On 14 and 15 May, we will start with the discovery of the daily life of women in the Middle Ages. The 18th and 19th of June will be devoted to witches, rites, beliefs and curses. Then, from 10 July to 28 August, the summer activities will plunge us into the exciting life of women knights. Other activities and workshops will be held throughout the year for everyone's enjoyment!

See you on Saturday 2 April at 10 a.m. for the 2022 season!
