Abbey of Marbach

Monument in Husseren-les-Châteaux

Former priory of Alsace located at Husseren-les-Châteaux, in Haut-Rhin, the Abbey of Marbach was founded in the twelfth century by regular canons of Saint-Augustin. Today home of several monastic establishments founded in the department, but also in Switzerland, and Germany, it was largely destroyed by its new owner in the course of the nineteenth century.

Listed as a Historical Monument, the Abbey of Marbach still has some vestiges to admire during a walk on the site. The narthex, which has three Romanesque arcades of the mid-twelfth century, has served as an inn and quarantine. Former vestibule which opened on the nave of the church, it was entirely restored at the end of the 20th century.

It is also possible to admire the wall of enclosure classified to the Historical Monuments and along more than one kilometer. The only vestige of this type in Alsace, it was completed at the end of the 15th century. Do not miss the Der Bauernhof farm, which houses workshops, or the remains of abbey buildings such as the foundations and ruins of the church choir.
