We really enjoyed the time we spent here. Beautiful views of the area below. Very peaceful setting. The church bell rings at regular intervals. The restaurant was very good, as well. Definitely stop to enjoy if you are in the area.

It has a nice view but that's about it. Not a religious person so I this place is overrated. It was snowing so most of the outside area was closed.

A few kilometres away from Strasbourg, near to Obernai, you can find this singular place. Nowadays Sainte-Odile is a complex which includes a convent, a hotel, a restaurant, the tomb, and some other buildings. This place, full of historical significance, deserves a visit if you...More
