The Haut-Koenigsbourg castle most certainly had a garden in the Middle Ages. A medieval garden was therefore created to complete the castle domain in 2001. The garden was planted the length of the ramparts, outside the fortress, with ideal exposition to the sun. Here visitors can discover the different aspects of gardening in medieval times: the garden is composed of square planting areas enclosed by low wicker trellis sections, rose bushes, vegetable plots, medicinal plants, and a flower garden. Visitors can rest and talk on benches where couples met in medieval times to make the first contact…. The castle gardens change constantly over the seasons; come and see for yourself.
