Heritage side from Ernolsheim Bruche
Chapel of our Lady
Inside, the choir and the altar are made of sandstone. The ceiling and wooden pews are more recent. The two arched windows are decorated with a stained glass window.
n 1554, the Urendorf family built a small Renaissance castle. When their lineage died out, the castle became part of the nobility of the Empire. During the 18th century, it was owned by the De Cléry and then the Wimpfen family, before being converted into a farm.
No visits are possible. The castle is privately owned.
Church of Sts. Como and Damian
Dating from 1838-1839, this building was built on the site of a church dedicated to St. Como and St. Damian. There is an 18th century altar of the Virgin Mary in polychrome wood. The pulpit of the church is decorated with busts of the 4 evangelists in oak wood, very finely carved by the sculptor Klem.
The neo-Renaissance building is distinguished by its small scrolled gable.
