Quiet atmosphere in Weimerskirch

Attached to the hill, the district of Weimerskirch has a quiet, village-like atmosphere.

Known as the “little parish”, the origins of this district date back to the Middle Ages. For a long time, Weimerskirch had a major influence on the town’s churches. Its Saint Martin church attracted parishioners from the surrounding area.
