Visited citadel Bitche and castle Fleckenstein.

Up to the top!
The small stairs who take you up to the top of the castle let you imagine how little space they must have had when they build it. Especially when you think of the effort to get goods up to the top or all the people who had to pass these stairs. Impressive architecture and a great view when you reach the top.

Drive Fleckenstein to Bitche
Car rides can be pretty boring if there is nothing to see or the surrounding is ugly. However, i really enjoyed driving through this forest. The whole area is actually the north end of the Vosges mountains national park. Take your time, stop for a bit in the cute little towns you will find on your way and enjoy some regional dishes. They also have a lot of hiking trails there if you want to pack your boots and do some outdoor activities.
