    The ancient "lavoir" (washing board) is a small building opened on three sides with water running across. The board was still there but do not expect to see anymore anybody using it ! Moreover, as the stream was obviously overflowing, it would not have been possible to use it but luckily, that made a huge drinking bowl for our thirsty little dog !

    When leaving Bœrsch in the direction of Rosheim, you must pass under another city gate, the Porte Basse (Lower Gate). It was built in the 15th and 16th at the same time than the Porte Haute and looks almost alike.
    I have read that the Porte Basse had a statue of the Virgin Mary. I have not seen it. I suppose it is inside..

    By the side of the Hôtel-de-Ville and at the entrance into the square, stands a 6 buckets well built in 1617 in Renaissance style. The well is now sealed but the pulleys and buckets have been kept on display. Actually, though it is named a six buckets well, there are 3 pulleys and 3 buckets. Each pulley holds two buckets, one at each end of the chain, which means that three other buckets are (or are supposed to be) at the bottom of the well.

    Marquetterie d'Art Splindler (Splindler Artistic marquetry) is labeled as a must see in Bœrsch but I learned that too late and have not visited it . It has been working for cmose to one century inside the former Saint Leonard Abbey. It has a work room, a show room and a shop..
