A typical Sundgau village which has added the award of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and the interprofessional Office of Fruit, Vegetables and Horticulture to its long list of prizes, Hirtzbach is proud of its four flowers. Recognized on a national and a European level for the quality of its blooms, it is undoubtedly a good place to live. Follow the course of the stream (the Hirschbach) and you will find beautiful half-timbered houses and an alley of 100-year-old lime trees. While strolling in Charles de Reinach Park, you can see the last icehouse in the Sundgau area, amazing vegetation and Reinach Castle. St. Afra Chapel and the parish church are full of artistic and architectural remains including a painting by Gutzwiller, a fresco by Limido (at the church) and a 15th century pieta (in the chapel). Don't miss the Festival of Nature, a big two-day street party during the first weekend in August which brings the entire village to life and attracts around 10 000 people to Hirtzbach for exhibitions, craft stalls, street entertainment, folk music and fireworks to close the festivities.
