Small village of Bas-Rhin, in the Grand Est region, Niederhaslach is nestled in the Haslach valley, on both sides of the stream Hasel. Surrounded by forests and hills, it is located about forty kilometers from Strasbourg, not far from Molsheim.

The village of Nierderhaslach was born in the 7th century with the construction of a monastery founded by Saint Florent. Converted into a collegiate church in the middle of the 11th century, he became dependent on the bishop of Strasbourg. Partly destroyed during the Thirty Years' War by the Swedes, the town is gradually reborn from its ashes to become an important place of tourism in the department.

Even today, Niederhaslach has a rich historical heritage that attracts many tourists visiting the region.

Things to see and do

Listed as a Historical Monument, Saint-Florent Collegiate Church was built between the 12th and 13th centuries. Considered one of the most representative Gothic buildings in the Lower Rhine, it was restored in the course of the 19th century. It reveals beautiful medieval windows from Alsace, as well as important statues, like the Annunciation, the Coronation of the Virgin and the legend of Saint Florent arranged on the portal of the early fourteenth century. Inside, you'll be able to admire the 14th century Holy Sepulcher, Gerlach von Steinbach's tombstone, Bishop Rachio's Late Middle Age funerary monument, a mid-18th century crucifix, or still a baptistery of the thirteenth century.

Not far, it is possible to discover the old cemetery with its funerary slabs of canons of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, or the chapel of the Virgin.

Do not miss the Saint-Florent Fountain, the recipient's home at Les Dîmes, or the mill and Helmbacher Farm. These are the former outbuildings of the abbey.

In the impressive Haslach Forest you can go for walks or bike rides. Not far from there, do not hesitate to go around to admire the rocks at the top of the border ridge.
