La Maison des Tanneurs: a fixture by the water

traditional

At the edge of the River Ill, in the district of La Petite France, this slightly askew building for the tanning of hides has inspired many artists.

You will find this house, and those adjoining it, on all the postcards extolling the charms of Alsace. We must admit that the sight of this traditional row of tumble down houses, old artisan dwellings attached to each other since the Renaissance, is as fascinating as it gets.

This venerable institution, whose reputation far exceeds the regions borders, attracts a customer base that appreciates the authenticity of family recipes around the traditional specialities from Alsace. Make a point of stopping here and sitting on the terrace along the river to sample the regional menu served in portions that could not be more generous.

An attentive and smiling staff will advise you on the house specialities: plump ‘coq au vin', stuffed guinea fowl, perch pike dumplings and of course, a fine choice of sauerkraut. You dreamed of Alsace? Well, here you are!
