" The village of Pfaffenheim is typical of the Alsace Wine Route. Come and discover it and enjoy the magnificent panorama offered from the convent of Schauenberg. "

The origin of Pfaffenheim goes back to the roman epoch and maybe previously in the Celtic epoch. Many convents owned their property in Pfaffenheim, that’s why this place was called “Papanheim”. But those religious people were maybe druids. That’s the reason why the origin of the village may go back to the Celtic epoch. During the Renaissance the wine trade was very good and there were three castles in Pfaffenheim. Nowadays, you can see remarkable houses from this epoch. Pfaffenheim was plundered and devastated many times because of its wealth.
