Barr

Surrounded by vineyards that harvest some of the finest vintages of Sylvaner and Gewurztraminer wines, Barr is a thriving, semi-industrial town that has some charming narrow streets lined with half-timber houses (notably rue des Cigognes, rue Neuve, and the tiny rue de l'Essieu), a cheerful 17th-century Hôtel de Ville, and a decorative arts museum. Most buildings date from after a catastrophic fire in 1678; the only medieval survivor is the Romanesque tower of St-Martin, the Protestant church.
