Did you know?
Mandelberg means “almond tree slope” in English. It’s the almond trees growing alongside the grapevines that gave the hill its name. One day Charlemagne, heading to Italy, came to a halt on the hilltops of Mittelwihr, no doubt to thirst his quench with some good wine. When his procession left again, strange shells were found scattered on the ground. In an attempt to avoid bad omens, people buried them; some time later, almond trees were blooming.
