A castle that has crossed the centuries...
First a fortified castle, then an urban castle of the prince abbots of Murbach, the site has never ceased to evolve and adapt to the tastes and needs of successive owners. Sold as a National Property, it hosted industrial productions for several decades before being transformed in the 1820s into a villa for the Schlumberger family, in a green setting.

The park was laid out at the 18th century for the pleasure of the prince abbots of Murbach. As Francophiles, they had a regular pleasure park laid out, reminiscent of the gardens of Versailles. As tastes evolved, the Schlumberger family transformed it into a landscaped park in the 19th century. Henry Schlumberger, passionate about botany, set up his botanical collections there.

A CIAP in a castle?
The Neuenburg Cultural and Tourist Cluster is home to the "Centre d'Interprétation de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine" - "Center for the Interpretation of Architecture and Heritage" (CIAP), a meeting place around heritage. The permanent exhibition provides an understanding of the history of the area and its evolution from the Middle Ages to the present day. Visitors are actors of their discovery by experimenting the heritage thanks to digital tools and models.
