Located on the Romanesque Road of Alsace, the Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in Ottmarsheim is a fine example of 11th century Romanesque architecture. Built between 1020 and 1030 by Rudolf of Altenburg, one of the founders of the Habsburg family, it was consecrated in 1049 by the Alsatian Pope Leo IX. Its octagonal structure, echoing the palatine chapel of Aix-la-Chapelle, makes it a unique example of Alsace’s religious architecture.
