Things to see and do

Important vestiges of the Middle Ages survive today, including the Bruche Gate. It is halved in 1574 as evidenced by the inscription on the external face, thus making it singular.

Private property, the Turckheim Castle in neo-Renaissance style, is built within the walls of the medieval fortress.

The Saint-Martin church is characterized by its long 18th century nave and its imposing baroque high altar.

In the course of the streets, one can appreciate several traditional half-timbered farms, sometimes decorated with a carved wooden gallery. There are also some stone-built buildings from the 16th to the 18th century, like the elegant town hall built in 1583.

In the heart of the village, the Hervé castle is also hidden, says la Magnanerie. Built in 1750, this private mansion housed a Royal School for the cultivation of silkworms. In the 1990s, this idyllic setting was used to shoot the Alsatian saga "Les deux Mathilde".

Guided tours for groups are organized on request by the mayor of the village. To find out more, contact the Tourist Office of the Molsheim-Mutzig Region.
