|The French small town of
Wissembourg is situated in the north-eastern part of
France just 1.2 miles from the border to Germany. The
German village of Windhof is situated directly at the
state boundary to Wissembourg borough.
7500 inhabitants/ Height above
sea-level: 630 feet
Arrival in Wissembourg (the name is a phonetic transcription of the Original German name Weissenburg), coming from Germany, this is the first place you reach.
Leaving the trunk road at this small intersection, means going into France.
|Borderline along the main road: observe the little abandonned customs border-house on the right, the living-house behind it, is in Germany already.|
Zooming in: the street board with the place name and a welcome-board of the State of Rhineland-Palatinat next to it.
Leaving Windhof (Germany) towards Wissembourg (France).
And finally: (since we are here anyway...) A touristic view of the old town (Vielle Ville) of Wissembourg/Alsace.
