    from Wikipedia: The abbey church Ottmarsheim is a church building in the small Alsatian town of Ottmarsheim. The former monastery church of the monastery Ottmarsheim (Benediktinerinnen), which dates back to the first half of the 11th century, is one of the most important monuments of Romanesque architecture. Its central building in the shape of an octagon has its model in the Carolingian Aachen Palatinate Chapel.

    Touristy, the building is marketed as part of the Roman road.

    Very nice Romanesque church. A 10 km loop from Germany is worthwhile to see the building.

    The former abbey church is one of the most famous Romanesque churches on the Upper Rhine. This jewel of the architecture of the 11th century is characterized by an octagonal floor plan based on the example of the Palatinate Chapel of Charlemagne in Aachen. The abbey church, built in 1030 by Count Rudolf von Altenburg from the House of Habsburg, was consecrated in 1049 by Pope Leo IX. This monastery church is really worth a visit.
