Mount Sainte-Odile - Tourism in the Bas-Rhin

The convent situated at the top of the mount Sainte-Odile, at an altitude of 763 metres, near Obernai, constitutes a pilgrimage centre. This religious site is dedicated to Saint Odile, the main religious figure of Alsace. The terrace of the convent, with two viewpoint indicators, offers a magnificent view of the forest, the Alsace plain and in clear weather even of the Black Forest.

The pagan wall (mur païen), 10 kilometres long, is a surprising rampart arround the mount Sainte-Odile. Its origin still remains a mystery today. A forest footpath takes you around the length of the wall.
