    Very picturesque old town - dominated by the Church of St. Peter and Paul.
    Best known is the western district, "le Bruch" with its canals and half-timbered houses.
    But who goes through the winding lanes - off the main tourist route - will find some very interesting views and photo opportunities.

    Wissembourg's old town is still partially enclosed by remnants of the old town fortifications. It is the northern starting point of the Romanesque street that leads through Alsace in places with architectural monuments of the Romanesque. Here it is the abbey church of St. Peter and Paul and in Altenstadt the parish church from the 11th / 12th. Century.
    The abbey church Saints-Pierre-et-Paul (St. Peter and Paul) is one of the largest churches of the Bas-Rhin outside of Strasbourg. The predominantly Gothic building still has a Romanesque bell tower from its predecessor (11th century). Inside there are glass windows and murals from the 14./15. Among other things, there is an eleven-meter-high depiction of St. Christopher, as well as an original organ from 1766, which has one of the most magnificent buildings in Alsace. From the old monastery of Weissenburg, where the monk Otfrid von Weissenburg worked, there is only an unfinished, highly Gothic cloister left, which is considered one of the most beautiful in the Upper Rhine region. Attached to it is a former Romanesque chapter house, which today serves as a side chapel.
    The Protestant parish church of Saint Jean is a simple Gothic building from the 15th century in the style of mendicant architecture.

    Eating out: Restaurant A l'Ange or Restaurant Au Petit Domincain. The Cafe Rebert is also worth a visit, because the wonderful creations of Daniel Rebert are irresistible.
