Its strategic position revives the memory of the Roman road that connected the Alsace Lorraine. This is one of the most charming cities of Alsace with its cobbled streets and timbered houses richly decorated. In addition, the hometown of Dr. Schweitzer is characterized by the approval of his walks in a quiet forest. Located on the road to St Jacques de Compostela.
