Barr Things to Do
The museum, which features old and contemporary pieces, is housed in a small castle that was formerly the home of the founder of the St Anne Glassworks. Look out in particular for the candelabra made for the 1867 World Fair, the Vase of the Three Graces (1909) and the collection of opaline and millefiori paperweights. The last room illustrates the...more

It's a family run restaurant, wam and cozy inside . . . or you can eat outside at an umbrella table. There are lots of locals here.

Barr Off The Beaten Path
The castles of Landsberg and Andlau stand high above the town
"Discover and explore freely this sumptuous Castle, whose recent foundations date back to the 16th century.
The “Haut-Barr” Castle, built on 3 wide rocks, the Septentrional Rock, the Median Rock and the Southernmost Rock- best known as Markenfels, has an altitude of 470 meters.
The pinnacles of two of these rocks are connected by a footbridge, accessible by staircases and known by the name 'The Devil's Bridge'. By crossing this footbridge, you will be dazzled by the stunning view of the Alsace plain and the Northern Vosges that the Castle offers you. That is also where its nickname of 'Eye of Alsace' comes from. On top of that, if the weather is good, you will be able to see the arrow of the Cathedral of Strasbourg.
Situated on the northern outskirts of the town of Barr, the Kirchberg extends over 40,63 ha of the Vosges foothills to the east of the Champ-du-Feu massif, at an elevation ranging from 215 to 315 metres, with a beautiful southeast exposure. Kirchberg Grand Cru wines reveal great nobility. Less precocious than those of other vineyards, they need...more
On this pretty little square, which is formed by the intersection of two streets, we found a very cute cafe to have a cup of coffee. What attracted us was a window decorated with numerous different hand-made cakes.... mmmmm..... yummm! :))) So the choice was made! But the girls working there was so nice, that when we were leaving the place, they...more
This was the Main square (as we named it :))), where we stopped and dropped our car (a part of it can be seen on the pic ;))) in order to be more flexible and free to explore the town. By the way, on this very square was a nice little shop with local crafts, it was run by a very nice lady, who produced 70% of the goods herself. That day we and...more
