Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge: W is for Windstein

It’s time again for Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge, this week it’s W. From my travels, W could be for Wales, Weimar, Wells, Westendorf, Whitby, Wien, Windsor, Wuppertal…. and more that I can’t immediately bring to mind!

But I am going for Windstein – or more precisely, Chateau Windstein in Alsace, France. Quite an imposing site, good for views when you get to the top, and a stairway inside the walls that is properly dark, gloomy and the sort of thing that makes castles worth exploring!

Stairway to where?

More W to be found at Frizz’s blog here.


  1. The sort of stairs I avoid! Dark, worn and no doubt narrow!

  2. Suzanne

    W is also for WOW – you have seen some incredible places in your life.

    • I would rather agree…I have always been curious about places and people, always wanted to find new experiences, and thank goodness I did things when I did….with less robust health, I am more limited in my adventuring! But I still intend to do what I can!


    Now with a flashlight those are the kind of mysterious stairs I like!

  4. Well, certainly not a stairway to heaven. 😯 What an amazing site to build a chateau on. Those builders must have had a good head for heights.

  5. Sue I want to venture up those stairs right this minute. What intrigue! That first photo is amazing. They definitely could see any enemies coming from that vantage point.

  6. Very well captured – perfect choice you made – actually so I’m in the area for the time being (Kaysersberg) – these ruins are so fascinating – tells so much history… 🙂

  7. The kind of place I would want to check out Sue. Great choice.

  8. I’m very proud to find in your famous Intro my hometown WUPPERTAL close to WINDSOR: “W could be for Wales, Weimar, Wells, Westendorf, Whitby, Wien, Windsor, Wuppertal….
    I made a poster featuring the personal horizon of my hometown WUPPERTAL:
