Geography[edit]

Agriculture, including livestock rearing, plays an important part in the village economy.

History[edit]

The first surviving record of the village appears under the name of Hittendorphe and dates from 797. At that time the settlement was part of the lands of the Abbey of Wissembourg.

The church of Saint Vincent dates from 1746, although the tower is older. The organ, dating from 1853, was built by Pierre Rivenach.
