    Fantastic view. Historical and cultural highlight.
    The monastery now also houses a hotel and a restaurant. The monastery can be visited freely and there are many corners to go 'in'.
    The place is well known and popular, so it is usually well visited.

    The Odile mountain is called the holy mountain of Alsace. The main attraction is the monastery of St. Odilia, built on a steeply sloping Buntsandstein rock towards the Rhine. Saint Odilia is the patron saint of Alsace. She founded the monastery around the year 700.

    Famous monastery with great views. The church is very pretty. 2 small chapels with beautiful mosaic vaults. It is remarkable that people stick to the silence requirement.

    The monastery was built in the 7th century by Odilia, a daughter of the Frankish Duke Eticho, in the Hohenburg, which had been given to her by her father for this purpose. The place was used as a nunnery until the Middle Ages and later named after Saint Odilia, the founder of the monastery and patron saint of Alsace.

    The Chapelle Sainte-Odile (Odile Chapel) with the remains of St. Odilia, the Fontaine de Sainte-Odile (Odile Spring), is located just below the monastery and aims to alleviate eye diseases.
