Museum of the battle of 6 August 1870

This museum is entirely dedicated to the battle waged on the day of 6 August 1870. Recorded in history as the "Battle of Reichshoffen", it was in truth the battle of Froeschwiller for the french army and the battle of Woerth for the prussian army. Found on the battlefield, the majority of the items exhibited testify to France's painful past. A diorame of more than 4,000 tin figurines captures a moment in the battle in which so many courageous combatants gave good account of themselves. Though the documents, pictures and postcards... produced for the purposes of remembrance tourism, form an interesting part of the collection, the firearms, the bladed weapons, the uniforms, the helmets, the caps, the tools and the items necessary to the life of a soldier, form the lion's share.

Outdoor routes are possible (battlefield), in complete autonomy, thanks to the explanatory panels along the route of the monuments (70 between Woerth, Elsasshausen and Froeschwiller) as well as the Sentier des Turcos (only on foot, starting at the exit of Woerth, in the direction of Lembach) For a playful discovery: geocaches and smartphone applications Mobi'1870 and Alsace 1870-War and Peace.

Dieses Museum widmet sich aussschliesslich der Schlacht vom 6. August 1870. Bei der unter dem Namen "Schlacht von Reichshoffen" in die Geschichte eingegangenen Schlacht handelt es sich eigentlich um die Schlacht bei Froeschwiller für die französische Armee und um die Schlacht bei Woerth für die deutsche Armee. Die meisten der auf dem Schlachtfeld gefundenen Ausstellungsstücke zeugen von dieser für Frankreich schmerzhaften Vergangenheit. Ein Diorama aus mehr als 4000 Zinnfiguren schildert einen Augenblick dieser Schlacht, bei der sich zahlreiche tapfere Kämpfer auszeichneten.
