Fantastic view. Historical and cultural highlight.
The monastery now also houses a hotel and a restaurant. The monastery can be visited largely freely and there are many corners to go 'in itself'.
The place is well known and popular, so it is usually well visited.
The monastery was built in the 7th century by Odilia, a daughter of the Franconian 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.Source: WikipediaThe Chapelle Sainte-Odile (Odile Chapel) with the remains of Saint Odilia, the Fontaine de Sainte-Odile (Odile Spring), is located below the monastery and is designed to relieve the eye.
