BL620 - Mediaeval towns and Baroque art - Itterswiller

The circuit starts with a foray into the vineyard. Small hills and winegrowing villages form a patchwork to the foot of Haut-Koenigsbourg Castle. Further on, Sélestat is the entry point into the Ried Plain, a region of forests and wet meadows. There are several sights to see along the way. Dambach-la-Ville is a flower-decked mediaeval town in a remarkable winegrowing area. Don’t miss 13th-century St. Sébastien’s Chapel perched on the hillside. Scherwiller, located in the shadow of Ortenbourg Castle, is another winegrowing village, home to several wine cellars set behind red sandstone gateways. Further on, Sélestat, the town of Béatus Rhénanus, is home to the famous Humanist Library. St. Foy’s Church is a masterpiece of Romanesque art and an example of the town’s rich historical heritage. St Maurice’s Abbey in Ebermunster is a true gem of Alemannic Baroque architecture and is the only church in France in the Vorarlberg Baroque style. The richly ornamented interior holds a Silbermann organ built in 1730. In Epfig, St. Marguerite’s Chapel is a fine example of Romanesque art in Alsace
