The historical circuit
Turckheim has succeeded in preserving its medieval character with its three gates and important remains of ramparts.
A circuit of about 50 minutes starting at the Tourist office will allow you to see in addition to the three town gates and the other remarkable monuments, the Hôtel des Deux Clés, formerly the cabaret « A l'Aigle Noir » where Hortense Mancini, the Duke of Mazarin's wife used to stay, the house of the former "Boeuf Rouge" (Red Ox) inn and the house of l'Homme Sauvage (the Wild Man) today a restaurant.
The Royal Provost's former manor where Charles Grad, a publicist and politician was born, belongs now to a wine grower.
The tithe courtyard was the residence of the weights and mesures inspector of the Munster Abbey. This residence also belongs to a private owner today.
