Temple Saint-Jean


Carry straight on along the rue de l’Arsenal, then turn right into the rue de la Loi up to the rue de la Synagogue where you’ll find the St. Jean temple. Although the building dates from 1836, the creation of this French-speaking Reformed parish (St. Etienne and St. Paul were German-speaking as in Alsace) goes back to 1661. It services were initially for French Protestant officers who were in garrison in Neuf-Brisach and had looked for hospitality in the Republic of Mulhouse. Note that the church adjoins the synagogue built in 1849 by Jean-Baptiste Schacre, also the architect of the Catholic church, St. Etienne (1860), the Protestant temple, St. Etienne (1866) and the central graveyard (1872).
