Ingwiller Synagogue

Synagogue
SITE OVERVIEW

It is to this location, at the foot of the Northern Vosges and on the edge of an agricultural plain, that Ingwiller undoubtedly owes its origin and probably its commercial vocation. Thus, Ingwiller was elevated to the rank of town on 11 May 1345 and was thus able to hold a market and surround itself with ramparts. Until the end of the 19th century, Ingwiller remained a rural and artisanal town of weavers, laundry workers, and brewers.
