In Niedernai there are various historical buildings such as half-timbered houses , the former keep (today the bell tower of the cemetery chapel), today's town hall ( Mairie ) from the 17th century and the Saint-Maximin church from the 19th century with a 67 meter high tower. An organ has been in the church since 1898, the case of which comes from an organ by Andreas Silbermann from 1713 , which was dismantled in Obernai in 1867 . The organ itself comes from the Swiss organ builder Martin Rinkenbach (1834–1917), who built it into the historic case in 1898. The Niedernaier castle Château de Landsberg is privately owned; the neo-medieval complex from the 1840s still has remains of the previous medieval and renaissance castle that was destroyed by the Swedes in the Thirty Years' War in 1634 .
