An old Roman Road
The urban centres of Colmar, Sélestat and Molsheim are located at the junction of three territories: the Alsace plain, the wine-growing foothills, and the Vosges valleys. The Roman Road that linked them in the Middle Ages avoided the Alsatian Ried, the region of flooded meadows and forests to the east of Sélestat. Today, the A35 motorway and the railway follow the same route on the western edge of the plain. A Roman military milestone still bears witness to the passage of the road at Orschwiller. Although there is no road linking the village to the Haut-Koenigsbourg castle, paths climb up the Stophanberch mountain to it.
