Photographer's Note

Haut-Kœnigsbourg, in German Hohkönigsburg, was founded as an imperial castle in the first half of the 12th century. The castle eventually had a lot of owners, among which were several German Emperors.
After the French-German war in 1870/71, the Alsace region fell to Germany, and the castle was generously renovated by Emperor Wilhelm II. After WW I,the castle fell back to France and since then remained in possesion of the French Republic, being the only french national monument within Alsace.
Alsace region is famous for a very dry, white, strong gentlemen's wine, called "Edelzwicker".
