In 1982 two municipalities will merge to become one: Hohwiller is attached to Soultz-sous-Forêts.
Hohwiller is a picturesque village built on the side of a hill on which the church stands.
The village is famous for its flowers earned him the rank of "4 flowers" at the national level.

IIt should be noted that the village of Hohwiller is quoted from the eighteenth century and it becomes, like Soultz-sous-Forêts, ownership of Fleckenstein in the fourteenth century, who owned a castle (referred to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries).

Sights and interesting sites

The town hall was built between 1905 and 1907, during the German period. The building also served as a school.

The wells
A notice on the site of the town hall, a well pump wood.

Alsatian houses
The habitat Hohwiller relatively well preserved. Are there many houses remarkable, dating mostly from the eighteenth century.

The church
The church of Saint John the Baptist is a historic monument. The bell tower and the nave date from the eighteenth century, but the chorus is Gothic. The frescoes are particularly interesting. They date back to 1491 and represent a mystical Moulin above the Eucharistic cupboard where there are angels and apostles who operate the wheel. These frescoes were restored in 1926 by Auguste Gresswiller of Dubois.

The Bretzel
The restaurant "The Bull" has a brand from 1903, decorated with a pretzel, the symbol of bakers.
