It has a nice view but that's about it. Not a religious person so I this place is overrated. It was snowing so most of the outside area was closed.

Loved the ride to the convent. The place is so peaceful. Great view and a lot of history. You can stay there as it is also an hotel. it has two restaurants, one gastronomic and another who is more like a cafeteria.

This convent offers a really nice view and a peaceful atmosphere, a lot of benches allow to sit for a picnic. A free parking is also on site.

I guess finding a taxi in Obernai don't be an issue at all... I stayed there for a week, and the town, although small has an amazing level of all sorts of services, so don't worry about a taxi at all... Apparently you can... More
