History and urbanism
The European Industrial Revolution greatly affected Mulhouse, earning it the nicknames of ”French Manchester” and the “Town of a Hundred Chimneys”. The mining, automobile and textile industries continue to leave their imprint on the Mulhouse landscape. Many sites have been converted, such as La Fonderie, a former mechanical engineering works, which has been replaced by the campus of the Université de Haute-Alsace.
Mulhouse wouldn’t be Mulhouse without its Place de la Réunion, the town’s beating heart in the historic centre. From this starting point, your stroll will inevitably take you through the Rebberg, the bourgeois district from the hills of which you get a panoramic view over the city, as well as via the Drouot-Barbanègre, where the old barracks have been turned into apartments.
Whether you’re there for a family weekend or business tourism, Mulhouse has plenty to do. How do you think it earned its title of ”European capital of technology museums”? Because it is home to museums celebrating the automobile, the tram and EDF Electricity, no less! Also, don’t forget to pay your respects to the Schweissdissi (“the sweating man”), a statue in tribute to the labouring masses, and to visit the reproduction on the façade of the town hall of the Klapperstein, or “gossips’ stone” used to punish chatterboxes.
Your stay in Mulhouse will be anything but boring! There’s always something happening: Carnavalia, which includes swimming across Mulhouse on 1st May each year, the Festival of the Automobile, the Bêtes de Scène music festival, Sainte-Lucie, the Dornach Festival of Light in November and many others.
