Ecomuseum of Alsace

The Écomusée d'Alsace opened its doors to the public on 1 June 1984. It was inaugurated shortly afterwards by Jack Lang, Minister of Culture. When it opened, the museum had about twenty buildings, some of which were unfinished, but it was already a success! It welcomed 75,000 visitors in its first year. Everyone encouraged the association to continue the adventure. The Alsatians then donated thousands of objects to the Écomusée d'Alsace, constituting the beginning of the interior fittings of the buildings: furniture, clothes, documents, photographs, etc.

The Whitsun procession

From 28 to 29 May 2023

Animation ponctuelle


This great spring procession brings together strange characters mounted on sturdy horses: the snail barker, the frost sniffer or the street sweeper... The most talkative, the Pfengschtflitteri (or Whitsun Foliage), is an incarnation of the spirit of nature. His humorous speech does not convince the villagers who want to ensure good harvests and who therefore throw him into the river to guarantee the predictions!
