Artolsheim is the French municipality furthest from the sea (430 kilometers each from the Mediterranean Sea and the North Sea).
The history of the village is closely linked to that of the Ebersmünster monastery near Schlettstadt , which already owned an estate here before the 12th century. Accordingly, there has been a church here since the 10th century. The place was devastated in the Thirty Years War . Because there was fear of a German offensive after the start of the war in 1939, which actually took place in 1940, the population was evacuated to the Dordogne department .
