The Château de Greifenstein is a ruined castle in the commune of Saverne in the Bas-Rhin département of France. Property of the state, it has been listed since 1898 as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture. The Grand-Greifenstein was, within doubt, founded in the first half of the 12th century by the knight Meribodo de Greifenstein who had close links to the Ochenstein family.
