The castle of Kagenfels, also named Kaguenfels, Kagenbourg, Haufmatter, Hombourwiller ou Falkenschloss, is located upon a very special granitic rock at 667 meters high.
A team of passionate people moves mountains of soil, stones and rocks there since 1999.
When we visited the place, Mathias Heissler gave us a warm welcome, showing us the latest discoveries made on the archeological diggings.
The progression of the huge work made by this Association can be seen on their french website :
