Wintzenheim is a commune in the Haut-Rhin département in Alsace in north-eastern France.

Its inhabitants are called Wintzenheimois.

Geography

Wintzenheim is a town of 8000 inhabitants to the west of Colmar.

Colmar is a town which receives very little rain because it benefits from a microclimate (called the micro-climat des Trois-Épis (fr)) due to the effect of a vortex propagated by the Munster valley with winds from the south-west to west. Situated only 3 km from Colmar, Wintzenheim benefits from this micro-climate.

History

Until the French Revolution, Wintzenheim was a dependence of the Lords of Hohlandsbourg. It was administered by the Ribeaupierre family and later by the Counts of Lupfen and, in the 16th century, by Lazarus von Schwendi (also known as Lazare de Schwendi). Louvois rewarded general Joseph de Montclar with this fief in 1680.
