Additional information
Guebwiller

Guebwiller is located 23 km northwest of Mulhouse and 25 miles southwest of Colmar in the Vosges and the entrance to the valley Florival (or Lauch Valley, named after the river that runs through it ). Le Grand Ballon, highest point of the Vosges, is located 8 km as the crow flies west of the city, which is the name commonly Guebwiller ball.

The history of Guebwiller is initially linked to the abbey of Murbach. The core of the current city is built around the Romanesque church of Saint-Leger and Burgstall castle. Enclosed by ramparts between 1270 and 1287, Guebwiller is from the 13th century and the revolution, the administrative capital of the Principality of Abbey Murbach. In 1759, Abbey received his transfer to Murbach Guebwiller. The Frauenkirche is then built houses surrounded by canons. During the revolution, the abbey's assets are sold to industrial developers and Guebwiller quickly became the second industrial center after high-Rhin Mulhouse. The urban landscape is altered by the construction of factories, villas and housing estates outside the city.
