Charles de Reinach Park
To the right of the castle of Hirtzbach, Charles de Reinach had arranged, in the 19th century, an English garden, populated with beeches, ash trees, pines and other rarer trees under our skies including a pedunculate oak registered in the supplementary inventory historical monuments. A stream and three ponds where swans and ducks frolic give it a pleasant note of freshness.
Open to the public, the complex houses several buildings including, to the left of the entrance, the last Sundgau ice house, where ice was stored cut from the frozen surface of the ponds.
Opposite the entrance to the park, on the islet called Sainte-Hélène, there is a chalet, the stake, which serves as a wood reserve. Beyond the icebox, another chalet, to the right of the driveway, was used for drying the boards, while the one copied from a model in the canton of Lucerne, at the end of the road, allowed the recovery to be stored.
