Alsatian Wine Route in Itterswiller
Itterswiller (German Ittersweiler ) is a French commune with 242 inhabitants (as of January 1, 2017) in the Bas-Rhin department in the Grand Est region (until 2015 Alsace ). It is located on the Alsace Wine Route at the foot of the Vosges .
The village is on a former Roman military road; the area should have been populated as early as Roman times. The name is derived from the Latin expression Itineris villa - "country house of the road / path". The so-called Lettre d'indulgence à Itterswiller dates from around 1330.
From 1871 until the end of the First World War , Itterswiller belonged to the German Empire as part of the realm of Alsace-Lorraine and was assigned to the Schlettstadt district in the Lower Alsace district .
The Saint-Rémi church in its current form dates from the 18th century, but still contains parts of the previous buildings. The choir with frescoes from the 14th century was built in the 12th century, and a reliquary from the 17th century has been preserved.
Parish fair is on October 1st; the autumn festival takes place every year at the end of September or beginning of October.
Itterswiller has had a partnership with the Île de Bréhat since 1975 .
