Location and access
Rohrwiller was badly affected in World War I and three quarters destroyed by bombardment in World War II. Nevertheless, wars, floods, disease and fires have not stifled the vitality of a hard-working and enduring population. The name of the town comes from the Germanic anthroponym "Rohr" (reed) and the Latin "villa" (farm). Like the reed, the village bends but does not break. Its inhabitants lived mainly from agriculture, but also, from the beginning of the 20th century of the development of the textile factories of Bischwiller, the nearby manufacturing city and capital of the canton. Today, Rohrwiller is a residential city with craft, commercial and service activities, and a dynamic associative fabric.
