Molsheim, a town over 1200 years old! There is so much to say and show that it is useless to tell you that it is possible to spend the day there and to organize commented visits.

The Jesuit Church, the Charterhouse, the Blacksmiths’ Gate, the Metzig, which are presented on the city tour, and the list is long, and here we present other nuggets.

On the heritage side

Horloge à Jacquemarts à Molsheim

Installed in the renaissance turret. It has 2 dials with only one hand each. The one on the upper dial describes a 12-hour turn, the other dial indicates the minutes. Above, the moon phases are indicated by a golden disc. Two angels, each with a mobile arm, strike the hours and quarters of the hour with hammers on two bells.
