The town of Thann, located at the foot of the Vosges mountains, a few tens of km west of Mulhouse, in the Haut-Rhin department in Alsace, despite the destruction suffered during the two world wars, still maintains several prestigious buildings and a beautiful Old Town. Among the most important buildings are the beautiful Gothic-style Collégiale church of St-Thébaut dating from the 14th century, the Tour des Sorcières and the ruins of the Château de l’Engelbourg. The Thann Christmas Market is the most important event of the year in this Alsace town.
