Castle Haut-Koenigsbourg takes a tender green coat …

If there is a figure that I do not risk forgetting, it is that of castle Haut-Koenigsbourg. The stronghold dominates the area. From one end to the other of the seasons it is there, imperturbable, like a watchman who has survived the centuries. From my window in La Vancelle, I cannot miss it. It would be hard for it to hide. Although from time to time, it shoves his head in the clouds. But its bad mood does never last very long. And where I am, I do not lose anything of its complicity with the seasons. I remember well the white coat of snow has first turned gray and in the end the castle managed to get rid of it. Now it is all clad with green. Come on! Show how beautiful and proud you are!
