Wissembourg The Essential
Recommended
Its history marked by sieges, disasters and acts of war (an 1870 battle is named after it), it is miraculous that the town of Wissembourg is so well preserved. A stroll along the ramparts, in the old quarters and the area called "Little Venice" reveals 70 pre-1700 houses and the imposing church of St Peter and St Paul, the second largest in Alsace after Strasbourg's cathedral.
