Louis XIV and Vauban carried out significant fortification works. In December 1813, at the end of
the wars of the First Empire, the castle was taken
by the Austrians who blew it up in 1814. Listed as

Notre Dame Chapel in Bellefontaine
Bréchaumont - B2
Notre Dame Chapel of Hippoltskirch
Sondersdorf - C4
St Brice chapel - Hausgauen - B4
Grünenwald Notre Dame Chapel
Ueberstrass - C3
In the 16th century a wounded hunter plunged
his bleeding hand into a nearby water source. It
healed rapidly and he placed an image or statue
of the Virgin Mary on the site in gratitude. Rapidly
known throughout the region, it became a much
frequented site of pilgrimage where, in the 18th
century, a chapel was built, designated in 2000
as an official pilgrimage site for the Sundgau Jubilee. Free access to the site all year round : located between Bréchaumont and Reppe. Chapel
open every Sunday from Easter to October, 3pm
to 6pm.
First recorded in 1144, and listed as a Historic
Monument, this chapel is an ancient place of
worship devoted to St Martin. Originally the
Sondersdorf church until 1778, when the current
village church was built. Extensive work in 1781
gave it its current look. In 1902, lightning struck
the chapel, ripping off the part of the roof covering the altar of the Virgin, and smashing and
knocking down everything except the statue
which remained intact…Free visit every Sunday,
guided tour for groups by appointment.
Situated in a bucolic setting between Schwoben
and Hausgauen, the chapel bears the date 1695,
but its origins may go back to 1000 AD, making
it one of the oldest sanctuaries in the valley.
Behind the chapel lay Dennach village which
disappeared in the 15th century. From 1753 to
1879 successive hermits lived there austerely, in
charge of guarding and decorating the chapel.
Free access to the site all year round. Interior
visible from May to September but complete
access to the interior of the chapel remains
protected by a grid.
It undoubtedly dates back to the 15th century,
although the Crowned Virgin cannot be dated
precisely. Some children found the statue in the
undergrowth. They confided it to the commander of the Order of Knights of St John of Jerusalem, who built the first chapel on the site.
The chapel is open every day and the key can
be obtained from the ‘‘Au Sapin’’ restaurant
next door. Visit free of charge all year round.

Sundgau, Southern Alsace, Cycling Paradise, is a collection of 9 routes (330 km)
where pleasure and discovery go together in one of the loveliest regions
of Alsace, authentic, mysterious and
preserved from mass tourism. Ride
through the tight mesh of villages
where only a few kilometres separate
one steeple from another ; a few turns
of the pedals are enough to change the
point of view and the terrain to be discovered. Take advantage of the 4 maintained cycle paths (120km in total)
including Euro-Velo 6 which runs along
the Rhone-Rhine canal.
Map of the Sundgau by bike.
Every year, each Sunday during the
season, numerous clubs organize
popular events where several varied,
family-oriented and convivial routes
are proposed, enhanced by copious
refreshments.
This 1/75 000 scale map, available free
of charge from three Tourist Offices in
the Sundgau, presents 9 cycling circuits, from 25 to 45 km, which include
special cycle paths and small, quiet,
sinuous routes that link up with the
main tourist sites.

bike holiday in the Sundgau or just
a day of cycling, contact the Office of
Tourism where our cycling guide will
provide advice tailored to your needs.

The enchanted forest - Atlkirch - B3
It’s a simple idea, in a unique place, involving abundant nature, an unmissable date
and intergenerational participation, all
free of charge. That’s the recipe for this
New Year event : a torchlight procession
around the castle (3 km), embellished with
a glass of bubbly within the castle’s magical
confines.
The Sundgau is a region in southern Alsace which has always affirmed its interest in sorcery
and make-believe. The Enchanted Forest is a magic forest with characters from the tales and
legends of Sundgau which breathes life back into the imagination of the region. It takes over
Altkirch town centre for 5 weeks from the beginning of December to Epiphany.
This unique and original concept in Alsace involves a town illuminated with more than 200
characters and 28 tales illustrated around reconstructed ponds and forests : the Little Man of
Blochmont, the Strawberry Fairy, the dwarfs of Wolf Gorge and the Koestlach Witch, etc.
Events, concerts, travelling shows, tales, toboggan runs, exhibitions, a skating rink, a snow
garden, carousels, the Saint Nicolas parade (with more than 100 actors, and manala cakes
distributed to children at the end of the show), carriage rides, etc.
Audio guides and books of tales (in French and German) available to the public at all sites.

The big Christmas markets
in Sundgau
Ferrette Medievals and
the Landskron Summer festivals
Sundgau offers many small authentic Christmas markets and will astound you with its
Enchanted Forest, but it is also the ideal
place to take advantage of the big Christmas markets nearby. A short distance away,
you can visit these renowned markets which
each have their own specificities and particularities. From Basel to Montbéliard, via
Colmar and Mulhouse, all these markets are
less than an hour from Sundgau where numerous accommodations await you.
In 1324, Jeanne de Ferrette married Albert
II of Habsbourg, giving rise to the entire dynasty of the Germanic Holy Roman Empire.
Around this historical reference and the ruins
of the castles of Ferrette and Landskron in
Leymen, the Medieval Ferrette Association
and the Pro Landskron Association hold an
annual medieval carnival. It takes place on
even years in Ferrette in June, and on odd
years in Leymen in July, with street theatre,
jousts, cuisine and medieval markets, archery, parades, etc.

SUNDGAU

German military cemetery
Illfurth - B3
During WWI, the soldiers were buried near
the battlefields. In 1920, the French tombs
were transferred to Altkirch and the German
ones to Illfurth. 1427 soldiers lie there, in named tombs, and 539 in a mass grave. This
cemetery houses the tomb of Lt. Mayer, the
first German soldier to die in a conflict which
resulted in 8 million dead and 20 million
wounded. This natural site is also known for
several species of wild orchids.

Ebourbettes Farm - Oberlarg - D3
Near the Swiss frontier, during WW2 it served as a clandestine base for the Resistance
and all those who refused forced enrollment
in the Wehrmacht. Here took place, in 1942,
the famous escape to Switzerland by General Giraud who subsequently took over the
forces in N. Africa and played a decisive role
in preparating the landings. A lovely walk
reveals the site, starting from Oberlarg (3.5
hours - 9km). Route map available from the
Office of Tourism. Accessible via a car park
situated between Winkel and Lucelle. Allow
15 minutes’ walk.
The Sundgau region is unusual in
that it is bordered by three countries :
France, Germany and Switzerland.
Thus it is easy to rapidly encounter
a change of landscape, culture and
language. Three large agglomerations surround our area : Mulhouse
with its exceptional museums, Basel
with its unique carnival and the fortified town of Belfort with its rich historic heritage. Commonly known as
Dreyeckland (literally : the angle of
three lands), Sundgau has a special
place at the crossroads of Europe.

Take advantage of your visit to Winkel to
discover the source of the river Ill and the
Beech Alley. Route map on sale at the Office
of Tourism, 1€ for a kit of 10 hiking maps
2 km path in Bettlach forest links three imposing Maginot Line forts, built between 1937 and
1940. Explanatory panels relate the history of
the Maginot Line, the colossal effort required
and the ephemeral role it played at the start
of WW2. Longer route available (7.6 km ; 3.5
hours.) Route map on sale at the Office of Tourism, 1€ for the kit of 10 hikes. Departure from
Bettlach Town Hall
This path reanimates the memory of this
unique place where, during WWI, three armies faced each other, only separated by a
fragile line : the frontier. Food for thought,
this Franco-Swiss pathway allows visitors to
apprehend, in the silence of the forests and
meadows, the fragility of our civilisation’s values : peace, tolerance and fraternity. Many

few kilometres from Illfurth, on the Heidwiller
side, and cut the Sundgau in two. This circuit,
starting from Burnkirch church, enables you to
discover several multi-purpose constructions
which served as munitions depots, observation
posts and artillery emplacements, not
forgetting the numerous bunkers presented
on the site. Distance : 6.5 km (2.5 hours).
Close to the wine route, Mulhouse invites
you to enjoy its numerous cultural treasures.
Discover its historic centre, Réunion Square
with its coloured facades, the Rhine-Renaissance-style Town Hall, Saint-Étienne Temple
with its 14th-century stained-glass windows,
and the most prestigious technical museums
in Europe, including Automobile City, Train

Discover the heritage treasures of the city of
Belfort : the Lion, the Vauban citadel, the old
town, etc. Get closer to nature : the mountains of the Ballon d’Alsace, the Malsaucy
natural site... Participate in big events : the
Eurockéennes of Belfort, International University Music Festival (FIMU), Entrevues, the
flea market in the ancient city of Belfort.
Describing Basel in one word is never easy.
Calling it the ‘‘Swiss cultural capital’’ would
be a vain attempt to reduce its wealth of
cultural events, leisure and entertainment.
Whether it’s for a dip in the Rhine, an evening at the opera or a cruise carrying you
back to the Roman era, consult www.basel.
com for information about this unusual city
where art is everywhere and the diversity of
museums is extraordinary.

For 2000 years, Alsace was split
between the Latin and Germanic
civilisations. Many remains attest
to the bitter conflicts between European powers. The two big ones
have left their mark on the Sundgau
terrain, the starting point of a front
which ends up at the North Sea. The
past is present in these places of
memory, right in front of your eyes.
To help you discover the many remains, a guidebook on memorial
tourism is available from Sundgau
Tourist Office.

More than 200 kilometres long and 60 kilometres wide, the Black Forest is not only
a holiday destination offering diversity of
landscape, it is also one of the biggest and
most famous regions in Germany for its
mountains, its traditions, its peaceful forests, its revitalizing spas and cuisine.
The ‘‘blue line’’ of the rounded ‘‘balloons’’ of
the Vosges, pine forests, fields covered with
blueberries and a special cheese. It is hard
to forget the images provided by the Vosges.
These mountains have a thousand faces :
you are never far from a medieval village,
a fortress, an abbey nestled in a valley or a
waterfall gushing from steep rocks.
