Near the village of Gruebwiller one may find towering above the trees what remains of the Abby of Murbach, a monastery whose history has roots as far back as the 6th Century. A Benedictine monastery, much of it was razed during the French Revolution. Today the two towers of the Abbey Church still remain. Within the church one may find the tomb of Count Eberhard, who established nearby Grubewiller. The Benedictine presence was established by Saint Pirmin to whom a 19th Century statue is dedicated at the Abbey. This site is notable not only for the history of the Abbey itself, but for the history of the French Revolution that is told in its destruction.
