Presentation of Dannemarie

The municipality of Dannemarie (2,259 inhabitants in 2018; 435 ha; municipal website) is located 30 km south-west of Mulhouse.

Dannemarie was mentioned in 1016 as Danamarachiricha, "Church of the Lady Mary".
Dannemarie's landmark is the Carp Inn, portrayed by the Alsatian illustrator Hansi in his book Le paradis tricolore (1918). Hansi (Jean-Jacques Waltz, 1873-1951) was the symbol of the Alsatian resistance to Germanization. His colorful, idealized representations of Alsace, still featured on post cards and souvenirs, have significantly shaped the national and international image of the region.
The Dannemmarie National Necropolis keeps the remains of 389 French soldiers killed in August 1914 in Dannemarie, Gildwiller, Montreux-Jeune and Moosch.
