Geography[edit]

The village is positioned between Selestat and Strasbourg. Close by, across the main road that connects these two cities, is the village of Benfeld, and some twelve kilometres (seven miles) to the east of that are Rhinau and the River ferry crossing into Germany.

The departmental road RD5 runs through the village which is surrounded by farmland.

Christmas[edit]

A traditional Christmas market has been held since 1996 over the weekend roughly four weeks before Christmas.
