Baroque beauty in a village church.

The picturesque village of Ebersmunster is in the Bas-Rhin department of the Alsace region, between Strasbourg and Colmar. The streets are lined with typical timbered houses painted in a mixture of pastel and strong colours, decorated with tubs and baskets of flowers. A small stream flows beside the attractive village inn. which looked loke a good place to stop for lunch.
I knew that the church stood on the site of a former Benedictine Abbey and that it was built in the early C18th in the style of Alsatian Baroque art.
As we approached it down the village street neither of us was quite prepared for for the sight of the onion-shaped domes atop the steeples.
After lunch we spent some time in the church and strolled round the village but had no time to linger any longer. Sadly we failed to keep our intention to return during the week hence the shortage of photographs.

    Going to Alsace in September and making a list of restaurants :-). We'll go eat first THEN visit this unusual Church for France. J.

    A beautiful church and a good restaurant nearby. What more could you want?

    Oh WOW! I forgot about this place. I went there in 1982 on a motorbike holiday. Loved it. I'll see if I have any pics and write a page.

    Church & organ look absolutely awesome! How fortunate that “improvements” and modernization were unaffordable.Wish that happened more often.

    It was good that you were able to stumble upon that nice church and it's treasure of a Silbermann organ! My wife and I love exploring the backroads too and just enjoying the quieter side of a country. I like the looks of your pub too!

    The small towns or villages in Alsace are always good for a surprise, aren't they? We've spent a few days there and I loved it.
