Historical Origin And Design Inspiration
ChÃ©teau du Fleckenstein is a castle in the commune of Lembach, in the Bas-Rhin dÃ©partement of France. This fortress, built in the shape of 52 m long boat, has a long history. The castle was built on a sandstone summit in the Middle Ages. An ingenious system for collecting rainwater fed a cistern and a hoist allowed water and other loads to be moved to the upper floors.
A castle is known to have existed on the site in 1165. It is named after the Fleckenstein family, owners until the death of the last male heir in 1720 when it passed to the Vitzthum d'Egersberg family. The family had had a lordship that consisted of 4 separate small territories in the Bas-Rhin dÃ©partement. In 1807, it passed to J.-L. Apffel and in 1812 to General Harty, baron of Pierrebourg (the French for Fleckenstein: stone town). In 1919 it became the property of the French state.
