In the Haut-Rhin, Alsace, Altkirch is the capital of the Sundgau region. It is at the crossroads of several countries, such as Switzerland or Germany, not far from Burgundy. This small medieval city founded in the twelfth century and glorious past is installed on a rocky outcrop and an impressive architectural heritage recalls this interesting story.
Crossed by the Ill, the city of Altkirch is surrounded by forests and hills that have made it successful. Visitors enjoy the greenery and ideal for hiking and other horse riding or cycling. The Alsatian Jura, not far, adds charm to the landscape of the Alsatian city.
Altkirch also owes its reputation to its important artisanal tradition, including the presence of pottery and other printers since the nineteenth century. An absolute must in Alsace!
