Bitche Citadel

A masterpiece of military art, the citadel is the most important historic site of Bitche. It is in fact the first thing you see as you approach Bitche.

It appears that originally it was only a hunting lodge, later transformed into a “Château”, which is what it was called for centuries.

From this rocky promontory, there was a breath-taking view of the entire region and, as it was difficult to access, it was easy to defend and soon gained a reputation for invulnerability.
