Les Ateliers de la Seigneurie is a cultural interpretation centre, designed by the Barr Communauté de Communes (Municipalities Association) as an interactive exhibition bringing local heritage and culture to life.

The centre is a fun and educational way for visitors to understand, feel and experience our cultural legacy in all its forms.


Drive in!

Spread over 700 m², the centre offers visitors lively interactive activities for enjoying the cultural heritage of Barr, its surroundings and of the region as a whole, through its architecture (half-timbered houses, castles, religious architecture), vineyards and craftwork, which have played such an important role in shaping our part of France.

Come alone or with family or friends and have a go at putting together a half-timbered house, learning about building materials and constructing a pointed arch. It’s a wonderful introduction to our cultural legacy.

Pop into the centre one weekend or just before visiting a wine producer or hiking to one of the surrounding castles, maybe at the start of your stay in Alsace, to gain a closer understanding of the generous and authentic land you see around us.
