Ribeauville, France dates back to the 8th century. The city was later named after the Ribeaupierre family that built the three castles that still stand on a hillside above the town and surrounding countryside. The 13th century castles - St. Ulrich, Haut-Ribeaupierre, and Girsberg - can be reached and explored by a pleasant dayhike up the hillside. The town of Ribeauville is itself picturesque, still containing some of the ancient fortifications that were built around it during medieval times. I hope you enjoy browsing the photos of Ribeauville, France below or viewing the Slideshow.
