All good things must come to an end and so to does my adventure in the Alsace region in France.
But not without a visit to a couple of more amazing castles.
Unfortunately, as friendly as France is with pets, there were still quite a few places that did not permit my handsome face inside their premises.
Nevertheless, my human road companions soldiered on and checked out two chateaus including one of the most unique we’d ever been to! While I enjoyed the journey on the road and stopped to run around the meadows, I then napped in our hotel room while they visited a couple of castles. Next time I hope to see them!
First up is the most interesting castle that we’ve ever visited: the Kintzheim Castle.
Why is it interesting you ask? Well because it also happens to be home to the Flight of the Eagles experience! The entire castle functions as a sanctuary for birds of prey. They are out in full display for everyone to see. Needless to say, I can see why dogs aren’t allowed.

Danny visited the château just as the show was about to take off!

Wow well, that was a lot of birds! I’m glad I didn’t go in there. Perhaps I would’ve made some friends but more likely I would’ve had some delicious feathers around my mouth!

As we drew closer to the end of our trip in Alsace we visited the second of our castles: the Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg, a medieval castle about half an hour from Strasbourg.

After the all-too brief visit to the château, we drove onward to the Normandy region!
That’s where we will visit next! We shall see!
