Protestant church


In 1552, Kuno Eckbrecht de Dürckheim, lord of Froeschwiller, introduced the Reformation to the village. After being destroyed in 1870, the present neo-Gothic “Friedenskirche” (church of peace) was built again in 1876. In its chancel you will find a white sandstone baptistery, as well as a big altarpiece dating from 1875 that represents Martin Luther and de Dürckheim. The sacristy contains memories of the battle of Reichshoffen, the famous charge of the cuirassiers. Also take a look at its gold book which bears the signatures of the German Emperor William 1st, the Crown Prince and the Emperor William II.
