Wissembourg : Michelin's recommendations
Its history marked by sieges, disasters and acts of war (an 1870 battle is named after it), it is miraculous that the town of Wissembourg is so well preserved. A stroll along the ramparts, in the old quarters and the area called “Little Venice” reveals 70 pre-1700 houses and the imposing church of St Peter and St Paul, the second largest in Alsace after Strasbourg’s cathedral.
