Marlenheim - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Bas-Rhin

Door of the Wine Route of Alsace, in Bas-Rhin, Marlenheim takes place at about twenty kilometers from Strasbourg, at the foot of the Marlenberg. The wine-growing town known for its wines, Rouge de Marlenheim and Grand Cru Steinklotz, is located near Kirchheim, Fessenheim-le-Bas and Westhoffen.

Populated since the Neolithic, as evidenced by the remains found on the spot, the territory of Marlenheim is cited in the sixth century as a villa of Frankish kings. It suffered many ravages during the wars of religion, the Thirty Years War or the Dutch War, before being attached to the Kingdom of France in the late seventeenth century. If its old town still retains a physiognomy inherited from its Roman past, it was able to modernize with the arrival of the railroad in the nineteenth century that made it into the industrial era.

Marlenheim continues to attract visitors today by the incredible beauty of its architecture, its rich past, and its wine business that is still famous.
