Petit village typique d'Alsace, rien de particulier à part quelques boutiques souvenirs, mais c'est surtout la beauté du lieu qui est exceptionnelle!! un petit pont surplombe une rivière magnifique avec une petite cascade et la lumière du soleil par dessus rend le tout presque magique!

Cutest, little village ever! The town is used to tourists, but not overrun. The result? People who understand English and still carry on with their day-to-day activities. Great pastries! Look around - this is a great stop for souvenirs. A necessary stop through the French countryside.
