Create an itinerary including Chateau Saint-Ulrich
The Château de Saint-Ulrich (also known as Château de Grand-Ribeaupierre or Ulrichsburg) is one of three castles (with the Girsberg and the Haut-Ribeaupierre) which overlooks the commune of Ribeauvillé in the Haut-Rhin département of France. It is situated at an altitude of 528 m.

The present name of the site is from the chapel dedicated to Saint Ulrich of Augsburg which is found in the castle. Medieval texts never gave the present name - the castle had the name of the Rappolstein dynasty (or Ribeaupierre in the French style).

  • We spent 2 days in Ribeauville, France. What a beautiful area ! Surrounded by history, great food, and good people. Sadly, we didn't have enough time to visit the ruins of this castle.

  • My wife and I climbed up to see two of the three Chateaux outside of Ribeauville. Saint Ulric is the better preserved of the two. You should be ae to climb up and tour the entire ruins in about two...

  • From the village you can hike to three castle ruins. This one is the largest. You can freely walk through the castle remains, and it is even possible to climb the tower. The view from here is amazing.
  • Lovely hiking above the Ribeauville village! We started from a small road near the parking and playground and we followed the "+" mark on the path. The distance until the two main castles is 7km (we did it in around 1hour ) and I would recommend athletic shoes and a lot of water. Both of the lower castles were nice, the first one had amazing views of the village and of the second one, whereas the second one (Chateau de Saint Urlich) was bigger and more interesting to explore. On our way down we chose a different path, starting from the second castle and we basically followed the red signs until the point where we initially started at the parking.
