Things to see and do

A stop at Kirrwiller can begin with the visit of the center of the village and its ancient traditional dwellings with certain charm. This is the case for two farms dating from the 18th, main street and church street.

The municipality also has two religious buildings.

The present Protestant church was also the first Catholic church, dedicated to Saint-Remi, and dates from the end of the 18th century. It has been included in the supplementary inventory of historic monuments. Both religions cohabited in the same place of worship according to the principle of simultaneum which ended before the first war. Originally endowed with a "choir-tower" flanked by two chapels, and inspired by the Gothic style, the building was reworked in the early 1920s. The nave was reduced in width and height but was increased by one Porch flanked by two front-bodies.

In 1911, the construction of the new Catholic church began, this time dedicated to Saint-Martin. It is in late Gothic style. It features a porch tower, a nave ceilinged wainscot and a choir with cut-off sides. The triumphal arch is decorated with two angels in bust. On the north and south cornice of the tower is carved a man's head. Furniture and objects of worship, as well as statues and paintings from the 18th and 20th centuries, which have been the subject of a census by the Ministry of Culture, are preserved and visible in both buildings.

The same is true of certain crosses of the cemetery.

In another area, hiking or cycling routes have been developed and marked out, at the start or at Kirrwiller. An opportunity to discover the natural heritage of the region, but also crafts (pottery) or some gourmet specialties. For more information, please call +33 3 88 89 23 45.
