The Italian Schlumpf brothers, built a real empire in the wool industry in the 1930s. Fritz Schlumpf turned the Mulhouse branch into a secret base for his precious cars that he bought and renovated.
When the textiles industry went downhill in 1976, the Schlumpfs sold their factories and fled to Switzerland. In 1977, the unions were amazed when they found the collection and it was classified a historic monument one year later. It has been feeding the dreams of young and old visitors since 1982.

Created in 1976, the Stork and Otter Park aims to help visitors learn all about the life and behaviour of these two species. In a park covering 5 hectares you can walk around landscaped lakes.
While 150 storks have been permanently resident in the park since its creation, since 1991, they have been cohabiting with European otters in the first French reproduction and reintroduction centre. In 1999 coypus were also introduced at Hunawihr much to everyone's delight.
As well as the park facilities there is a show where visitors can observe all these animals in their daily lives.
The Haut-Kœnigsbourg château had been abandoned for two and a half centuries before the Sélestat commune offered it to Guillaume II of Hohenzollern.
This member of the house of Hohensollern dreamt only to recreate the German Empire, and to this end he commissioned Bodo Ebhardt, a skilled architect well versed in Medieval fortifications, to oversee the restoration project. Ebhardt took great pains to recreate a typical 15th century fortress in the mountainous landscapes of Alsace.
Aside the unsettling time-warp that a tour of this edifice represents, visitors will also enjoy the breathtaking view of the plains of Alsace, the famed Forêt Noire ("Dark Forest"), the Vosges ranges and even the Alpine peaks in the distance when the skies are clear.
