Otrott lies under Mont Ste Odile, a well-known shrine in Alsace. The 1 600 inhabitants are used to pilgrims and pilgrimages...

Several chateaux, one romanesque chapel, and above all (remember you're in France) a vinyard that has been making an excellent red wine since... 1109 ! No doubt about the year, the monks from Burgundy for sure arrived that year to bring the plant !

In Otrott you may walk the st James Way easily. Just follow the bronze marks that the local non-profit organisation have fixed on the ground. Their name : Les amis de saint Jacques en Alsace. They also claim they have the casting frame made for them. They are members of the Fédération Française des chemins de Saint Jacques de Compostelle.
