Employment opportunities in the village are limited. The traditional economic focus of the region is Sélestat some fifteen kilometres (ten miles) to the west. The river crossing of Marckolsheim with its associated locks and hydro-electric power station offer employment opportunities: many low paid seasonal jobs are also provided by the Europa-Park 'theme park'.
