    Lauterbourg is the easternmost community in France, located at the municipality located on the mouth of the Lauter in the Rhine, the most easterly point of the country. The borderline also shaped the history of the city - changing rule, war, conquest, destruction - until the 20th century.
    Worth seeing in the small and mostly quiet town are the Trinity Church, which dates back to the 15th century, as well as the nearby Calvaire de Lauterbourg from the same period, the Landauer Tor, once part of the substructure of the medieval city fortifications. and the Episcopal Palace (later converted into a school) opposite the Hôtel de Ville.

    Bordering Germany, Lauterbourg is the easternmost city in France.
    Installed between river and forest, it has been occupied since Gallo-Roman times (Roman castle named Tribuni), and becomes the seat of bailiwick in the 13th century. Heavily destroyed between the 17th and 18th centuries, it experienced a German period (1870) before regaining the fold of France in the 20th century (1918). Evacuated in 1939, 80% destroyed, it was not released until March 14, 1945.
    From now on, Lauterbourg is best known for its architectural and natural heritage. Lovers of outdoor activities can head for the forest or the river to indulge in hiking or any other sport. A sailing base and a campsite, with its popular beach, are located near the town.

    The name derives from the river Lauter, where the town is located. Lauterbourg is the farthest east of France on the mainland, as the island of Corsica is further east. On the German side joins the place Neulauterburg.
