The Eurometropolis Strasbourg increases its membership

In January 2017, five new municipalities will join the Eurométropolis Strasbourg.

Dec 14, 2016

The “Communauté des communes des Châteaux” (Community of the castles villages) is the newcomer and counts five villages :  Achenheim, Breuschwickersheim, Hangenbieten, Kolbsheim and Osthoffen with about 6 600 inhabitants and a hundred companies.
Effective on the 1st. January 2017, the merger of this 5 villages with the actual 28 municipalities of the Eurometropolis requires a renewal of the executive.

The constitutive session will take place on January 5th and the budget will be voted in March. The arrival in the eurometropolitan Council of five new elected representatives will bring to 100 the number of Eurometropolitan councillors.
Geographically, it represents a widening to the west side of the territory on 23.64 km2.

Five villages with five castles in the “Communauté des communes des Châteaux”(Castle community), all witnesses of the history of Alsace :

  • From the oldest Osthoffen built in the 13th century
  • Breuschwickersheim 13th/14th century
  • Achenheim 1564,
  • Kolbsheim 18th century  
  • to the most recent - Hangenbieten around 1900,
