A register kept in the Municipal Archives mentions a nativity scene in the church of Saint-Georges in 1420; it is the oldest trace of the existence of a crèche in Haguenau and probably in Alsace! 2020 was the occasion to mark its 600th anniversary; the potter Vincent Remmy from Betschdorf, made an “anniversary” nativity scene with clay taken from the forest of Haguenau. This year again, new characters continue to enrich this crèche, specially created for Haguenau. Guided tours are scheduled for Saturday 10 and 17 December and Wednesday 28 December at 16 p.m.
