Chateaux of Alsace

Here is a list of Chateaux in Alsace, a region in the far North-East of France which is divided into two departments - Bas-Rhin and Haut-Rhin (Lower Rhine and Upper Rhine).

We have listed 169 Chateaux in the Alsace region (including ruins and "lost" Châteaux), of which 119 have their own dedicated page. If you know of any Châteaux in Alsace that are not in our list, please let us know!

Note - A few of the chateaux may be "double listings" of the same chateau: One of the challenges of the Chateaux of Alsace is that, being close to the German border, the land has at times been part of German territory and thus the chateaux often have both French and German names. If you are able to assist with nomenclature, please let us know.
