The aroma of history;the taste of wine

Save to my Account

This little village south of Colmar is known for its excellent vineyards, which benefit from the shelter of the Vosges Mountains to the west.

Among its interesting tourist sites is the Witches’ Tower, which was utilized up until the 18th century to incarcerate women accused of witchcraft. Find this designated historical monument on Place de la République.

Other historical old structures include:

  • L’église Notre-Dame/L’église Saint-Arbogast, a beautiful Gothic church with parts constructed in Romanesque style. The rose window is particularly lovely.
  • Halle aux Blés, the wheat hall, built in 1569 with a double staircase. It stands in the central square next to the former town hall, which is a double-gabled Renaissance building.
  • Family-owned vineyards turn out exceptional Riesling and Gewürztraminer wines. You can tour the cellars at Clos St-Landelin and sample a variety of wines at the tasting room of Bruno Hunold.
