 Start of the walk  Links about Saverne

I invite you today to a walk through the city of Saverne as it looked like in the past. You will discover the environment of our (great-)grand-parents, monuments or houses that are today transformed or that have disappeared, fields, meadows or orchards know conquered by the various housing estates.

The pictures that illustrate those pages are old postcards that were issued between 1895 and 1930 (approximately), drawn from my personal collection.

I have added some photographies which I took in Saverne in august 1999, in order to illustrate the changes which have occurred since this era. Some districts of the city are now unrecognizable and sometimes only a fragment of a wall or a façade allow to position the image of the past on the cliché of today.

If you enjoyed this walk in the past, if you would like to share comments about these pages, if you have some old pictures (postcards or photographs) of Saverne and would like to send them to me, then do not hesitate to send me an e-mail at the following address:

Have a good walk and see you soon!
