Haguenau is not only a spot of World War II interest, but it is also a medieval town that dates back to the early 12th century. As many towns around here have, it has switched hands between the French and the Germans quite a few times. Although the town suffered quite a bit of damage during World War II, it has several structures that date back 9 centuries.
We had a fantastic time wandering the walkplatz, checking out the river over which the American forces fought off the Germans, and taking in the medieval architecture.
