    If there is something special to do in this town, than it is to have a sightseeing round trip through the potteries, visit their houses and shops. I have described most of them in my Shopping Tips.

    2. Poterie Richard Hausswirth: 1, Rue de la Montée
    3. Ceramiques Elchinger: 6-9, Rue de Schirrhein

    In loose order followed by:

    Poterie Friedmann: 3, Rue de Haguenau
    Poterie Philippe Lehmann: 7, Rue de Haguenau
    Poterie Henri Siegfried: 10, Rue D'Haguenau
    Poterie Schakis: 20, Rue de Haguenau
    Poterie Michel Streissel: 25, Rue de Haguenau
    Poterie Kraemer: 46, Rue de Haguenau

    Memorials on the Oelberg

    the Last Supper in terracotta
    4 more images

    On top of the Oelberg, the hill where the old church stood until 1820 is a small green area today with a memorial that depicts the Last Supper.

    The work of art is exhibited in a sectional church-like building (possibly a reminiscence to the old church that stood on the hill). It was created in 1932 by Léon and Fernand Elchinger and Charles Burger and is a full-size reproduction of the masterpiece painted by Leonardo da Vinci.

    Opposite of it stands a memorial dedicated to the victims of World War I (1914-18) from the town and depicts Jeanne d'Arc.

    Oelberg at Grand'Rue

    Oelberg at Grand'Rue
    4 more images

    The Oelberg is a small hill in the vicinity of the parish church. Actually on top of this fortified hill stood the old parish church until its destruction in 1820. The area was used as the cemetary as well.

    Today it is a small green area with a memorial that depicts the Last Supper (see next Things To Do Tip).

    When standing on the hill you have nice views to the church and down the Grand'Rue, one of the main roads of Soufflenheim.

    At the foot of the church hill and at the corner of the street is the tourist information.

    Here you can take a city map and other useful brochures.

    These two houses are marvellous.

    Actually they are two renovated timber frame houses but decorated with plenty of tiny lovely or kitsch details depending on your attitude for them.

    Just to mention a couple of them:

    - many pottered items like plates, hearts, house number, a cat beside the entrance, a rabbit in the window, cats and birds on the roofs
    - an old wash basin with a tiny roof above it
    - a windmill in the yard
    - two pictures, one painted and the other tiled with coloured pieces, both depicting Alsatian themes like storks, flowers, a boy and a girl with traditional clothes
    etc.
