The Maison des châteaux fort is the starting point for many hiking trails to the ruins of the fortified castles in the area. It presents photographs which make it possible to discover and understand the architectural and geological particularities of the fortified castles of the Northern Vosges, but also maps and a set of vestiges exhibited on site: cut stones, stove tiles, pottery... A space is devoted to the Petit Arnsberg castle which overlooks the village of Obersteinbach with plans, photographs and excavated objects. The garden with its reading corner, the maze, the orchard with its playground and the petanque ground which surround the house are open to the public and equipped with benches and thematic panels.
