A charming commune which can be reached by the cycle track which goes in the direction of Strasbourg. It hides its history and heritage well. Surprisingly, we won’t tell you that there are also 2 castles (private estates).
A semi-gastronomic restaurant, a snail producer, a shop selling bulk products, a foie gras producer and his shop. And so many other things to discover.
On the heritage side
The parish church of St. Martin was moved to its present location around 1356. This originally Gothic building is characterised by its very long 18th century nave with a representation of the Ascension of Christ and a 14th century Gothic choir with an imposing 18th century Baroque high altar.
House with oriel
The lower part of the building dates from the Renaissance period, while the half-timbering is later. The corner oriel is on two levels separated by a cornice.
Gate from the Bruche
The gate from the Bruche marks the entrance to the medieval village of Dachstein, about 20 km from Strasbourg.
Early 14th century: restored in 1772, this gate is the main witness of the medieval fortifications of the town. Nearby, you will notice a tower from the Middle Ages.
The round tower
The round tower is a key element of the fortification of the medieval village of Dachstein, located on the Alsace wine route about 20 km from Strasbourg.
The round tower from the Middle Ages is located near the Porte de la Bruche, and is also known as the “seven-hole gunboat”.
