The Maison Rurale de l'Outre-Forêt was created at the instigation of the Cercle d'Histoire de l'Outre-Forêt. The Cercle was looking for a farmhouse representative of the North Alsace region to showcase its heritage and open it to the public, but also to pass on the traditions and know-how of the Outre-Forêt. The Rural House was inaugurated in July 1998. Since then, it has welcomed 12 to 15,000 visitors per year.
The Maison Rurale de l'Outre-Forêt is a former farmhouse, now a heritage interpretation centre: a lively place to discover Alsace's heritage and its popular arts and traditions.
The various collections on display, illustrations of rural life in the first half of the 20th century, as well as the activities, workshops and exhibitions that complete the visit to the site, invite young and old to embrace the multiple facets of the regional art of living: from the architecture of the buildings to the traditions and know-how of our ancestors...
The Maison Rurale de l'Outre-Forêt is a former farmhouse, typical of the region called "Outre-Forêt", located in the Vosges du Nord Regional Nature Park. Now a heritage interpretation centre, the Maison Rurale de l'Outre-Forêt offers visitors the opportunity to discover the habitat, way of life, traditions and know-how that existed in the Alsatian countryside between 1920 and 1950.
In this typical Northern Alsatian farmhouse, you will find all the useful functions of rural life.
