Le Trifels Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Trifels castle is of considerable historical importance. It used to be a Salian monastery, then became an imperial stronghold for the Hohenstaufens who kept their insignia there in the 12C and 13C.Henry IV held Richard the Lionheart prisoner in the fort while the latter was returning from the Third Crusade. The huge ransom the Emperor received in exchange for Richard's release enabled him to fund a military campaign against the Normans in southern Italy, setting off from Trifels.
