Location and access

  • Grand'Rue - A-Girl-In-Alsace
Around the Halle aux Houblons and along the Grand'Rue, you can see some remarkable houses dating mainly from the 18th century.
N ° 111: La Maison Cassina which owes its name to Giuseppe Cassina, a wealthy Italian merchant. Here, the usual balcony of mansions is replaced by a niche which houses the statue of Saint Joseph and the child, patron of the sponsor.
N ° 142: Former hotel in the Abbey of Koenigsbrück, a village near Haguenau. Of this hotel, all that remains is a remarkable balcony decorated with a rock garden cartouche. Until the French Revolution, this residence served as accommodation for the collector of tithes and as a pied-à-terre for the nuns of the abbey, during their stays in town. During World War II, the building was the seat of a senior Nazi official, the Kreisleiter of the district.
N ° 127: The only example of Renaissance style in the street.
N ° 157: The house at n ° 157 is very old. It was restored in the 18th century by the Italian merchant Joseph Paganetto whose initials appear in the ironwork above the front door.
