Saints Peter and Paul Abbatial Church

Located on the Romanesque Route of Alsace, the Saints Peter and Paul Church in Ottmarsheim is a joy of Romanesque architecture in the 11th century. Built between 1030 and 1040 by Rudolf of Altenburg, one of the founders of the Habsburg family, it was consecrated in 1049 by the Alsatian Pope Leo IX. Its central octagonal plan, a copy of the Palatine Chapel in Aachen, makes it a unique building of religious architecture in Alsace.

To discover the Abbey Church in its every corner and appreciate its splendor, the Information Point offers classical or theatrical guided tours all year round. For an hour, the guide will tell its buried treasures, the backstage and the legends of this remarkable monument.
