Uttenhoffen is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

History[edit]

Finds from the Neolithic Age and the Hallstatt culture period are as attested as the settlement in Roman times. After introduction of the Reformation in the 16th Century Uttenhoffen had until the 18th century a simultaneous church. Around 1790 it was fortified. On 1 December 1793 the near winter camp of Major General Stephan Bernhard Keglevich and his private Serbian soldiers was attacked by surprise. 7 days later on 8 December 1793 Madame du Barry was executed for treason.

Extras[edit]

The church has on each side three arched windows and the tower of the church is designed in the framework construction.
