Activity description

We offer you a collective and intercultural adventure in Alsace! On the programme: a workcamp useful to the rural community, technical training, exchanges with local habitants, animation with young people from Alsace, co-prepared meals, the discovery of the Vosges of Alsace... The work will involve consolidating the wall of the "western curtain wall" of the castle ruin. The association aims to finish this old building site for the celebrations of the 800th anniversary of the castle, in 2025. The work will consist of maintenance work : it aims here to preserve the existing without adding facings or heightening. The "identical" consolidation of this wall began almost fifteen years ago, in conjunction with the French heritage services (Monuments Historiques, DRAC). For exemple, you will remove and replace one to three layers of facing and have a prospection of the outer lining to uncover archaeological material.
