La place du Marché d'Obernai
24 Apr 2015 | From Catherine of France
This picturesque place is located Northeast of France. The market square in Obernai in the Bas-Rhin, is truly the heart of the city, gathering around her many monuments and striking architecture. Its town hall is preserved in perfect Gothic style, and so particular is the Fountain Sainte-Odile, built in honor of the patron saint of Alsace. This place is a real medieval center, written traces proving its existence from 1301. At Christmas many craftsmen meet here for the traditional Alsatian Christmas market.
