Rue et cour des Juifs
The small Rue des Juifs gives onto the Cour des Juifs, the old Jewish ghetto. At the far end is a narrow passageway and wooden staircase leading to the ramparts and the Thieves' Tower museum. In the 15C, the impoverished inhabitants of Riquewihr borrowed large sums of money from the Jewish moneylenders of the ghetto. Then, deciding unilaterally to cancel their debts, they massacred their creditors.
Address:rue des Juifs, 68340 Riquewihr
