First of all thanks to VT-Member tini58de who gave me the hint to visit this little town in the north of Alsace. This little place still has the charm of a 17th century village and has a very interesting history. It was birthplace of the sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi who made the Statue of Liberty of New York City and was home of Louis XV's wife Marie.

    Quite an interesting little spot hidden away in France! The history of those buildings over the centuries is amazing! Great photos too.

    Wissembourg is a great introducion for the delights that lie further in the Aslatian hillsides. A little history and nice photos demonstrate all of this.
