The castle is sited on the massif of Mont Sainte-Odile, to the west of the abbey. It overlooks the valley of the Ehn which it controls along with the castles of Ottrott (Koepfel, Rathsamhausen and Lutzelbourg) and the Chateau du Hagelschloss. As with the latter, it is close to the Pagan Wall of Mont Sainte-Odile. Access to Dreistein is only possible on foot, following paths laid out by the Vosges Club (Club Vosgien).The Chateau de Dreistein was built in the 13th or 14th centuries and was separated into two sections later. In the 17th century it was destroyed.It has been listed since 1990 as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.
