Ingwiller (German: Ingweiler) is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

The commune lies within the North-Vosges natural park.

History[edit]

The first known mention of Ingwiller dates from the year 742 a.C. as Ingoniunilare,[2] 785 as Ilununilare, 1175 as Ingichwilre and 1178 in a bulla of the Pope Alexander III as Ingevilre.[3]

On demand of Simon von Lichtenberg, the Emperor Louis IV the Bavarian imposed the village Ingveiler in the year 1345 to the town Ingveiler.[4]

With the end of the Franco-Prussian War in the year 1870/71 Alsace-Lorraine became part of the German empire. 166 inhabitants of the town Ingwiller took the option of the Treaty of Frankfurt (1871) to remain French citizens and therefore had to leave Alsace-Lorraine towards Southern France.
