An unforgettable experience during your stay in the area: the town of Ebersmunster and the abbey church of Saint-Maurice.A treasure trove of baroque architecture, spectacular with its three towers visible from afar and its organ by Andreas Silbermann. Under the nave with its gilded and grandiose frescoes, take a few moments to discover the choir with its many gilded rooms, the carved wooden stalls and the paintings that adorn the white walls and make the place an architectural nugget of baroque style. Dating mainly from the 18th century, the abbey church of St Maurice d'Ebersmunster is one of the most beautiful in eastern France, recognizable in the distance on the Alsace plain with its three bulbous bell towers, covered with green tiles.Every year, between May and July, take advantage of the Ebersmunster Musical Hours to discover the abbey church and listen to a series of classical and sacred concerts.Around the abbey church, stroll through the town, a typical village on the Ried, with its half-timbered houses and beautiful old farms. Stop to taste two local specialities: the Ried matelote, a fish dish, then a "mandelbari" (almond mount), a sweet delight composed of a superposition of shortcrust pastry circles topped with almond meringue.
