Before leaving on a crusade in 1189, Frédéric Barbarossa founded a hospice outside the walls of Haguenau intended to welcome pilgrims as well as the destitute and the sick. A parish was quickly established around it and after a first building, a larger church was built. Unlike others, it does not have a cross plan. In 1424, the church was enlarged and the neo-Gothic sacristy was built in 1846. The tower was seriously damaged during the war and the bell destroyed. The restoration of the church from 1965 was able to bring out the beautiful lines of the Gothic construction in all its purity. The contemporary stained glass windows, made between 1961 and 1965, are by Arthur Schouler.
In the right side entrance, there is a remarkable Holy Sepulcher which dates from the years 1350-1360. In the nave and in the choir a remarkable set of furniture and woodwork from the Neubourg Abbey, destroyed during the Revolution, was reinstalled in the XNUMXth century: organs, pulpit, stalls and statues of the fathers of the Church.
