    Houses and flowers in Wissembourg

    Favorite thing: If you go to Wissembourg it must be a sunny day ...so you can wander about all the beautiful , narrow streets

    Fondest memory: I had my sunny day in Wissembourg and I enjoyed every minute of it ! I admired Salthouse , the Cathedral , lots of flowers at windows , half timbered houses ( my obsession :-)) , little canal and eat a tasty cake !

    History of Wissembourg

    Favorite thing: The oldest part of Wissembourg, the "Faubourg de B!tche" or "S'Bruche" was founded around 800 A.D. around the Priory of St. Michel. In 1190 a church was built which became the parochial church of the Bruche quarter, St. Michael. In the 15th century a rampart was added to protect the steadily growing city of Wissembourg.

    The more recent history had the Alsace alternately belong to France and Germany - now after WW II it is part of France again, but you still do hear a German dialect every here and there!
