Things to see and do

Important vestiges of the Middle Ages remain today including the door of the Bruche. It is lowered by half in 1574 as attested by the inscription on the outer face, thus making it singular.

The church of St. Martin is characterized by its very long nave of the eighteenth century and its imposing high altar baroque.

Along the streets, one can appreciate several traditional half-timbered farms, sometimes decorated with a carved wooden gallery. Also worthy of mention are some rubble constructions from the 16th to the 18th century, like the elegant town hall built in 1583.

In the heart of the village, hides also the castle Hervé, said the Magnanerie. Built in 1750, this private manor 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 upon request by the village mayor, for more information contact the Tourist Office of the Molsheim-Mutzig Region.
