The Chateau d' Isenbourg is an elegant construction surrounded by flowery gardens.Overlooking on one side the villages and on the other, the vineyards.Cultural and green tourism combine to help you discover Alsace and the Vosges mountains. Built over 12th and 14th century vaulted cellars, this manor is an historical and gastronomical stop over on the Alsace wine route.
The existence of the Chateau in the Merovingian era is attested in several documents. Rouffach was part of the Austrian crown lands and the Chateau d'Isenbourg was one of the royal residences.
In 1380, Bishop Frederic de Blankenheim enlarged and doubled the fortified walls of the city, with the object of giving better protection to the town of Rouffach.
The Chateau d'Isenbourg was made part of the town's system of defense. The oldest representation of the Chateau shows Isenbourg and the town of Rouffach in 1548. The imposing mass of the Chateau was dominated by the old Keep, the most ancient part, which, according to tradition, was 'as hard as iron'.
On 7th June 1791, Isenbourg was sold as a national asset. Around 1822, the old superstructure was demolished, the remaining barrel-vaulted cellars, dating from the 13th and 15th centuries are now used as the Restaurant, the cellars and the kitchen.
