A museum dedicated solely to the battle of August 6, 1870

This museum is dedicated to the only battle of the day of August 6, 1870. Passed down in history under the name of "Battle of Reichshoffen", it is actually that of Froeschwiller for the French army and that of Woerth for the German army. Found on the battlefield, most of the exhibits bear witness to this painful past for France. A diorama of more than 4000 pewter figurines retraces a moment of this battle in which so many brave fighters distinguished themselves.

While documents, paintings, postcards, etc., produced for the needs of remembrance tourism, constitute an interesting part of the collection, firearms, bladed weapons, uniforms, helmets, headdresses, tools and the necessities of the life of the soldier constitute the essence of it.

French defeat which will open the road to the Vosges and consequently that of Paris to the army of the German coalition, this battle will result in the annexation of Alsace and Lorraine to Germany.
