Alsace: Ungersheim Ecomuseum
Other houses in the village once belonged to wealthy farmers, tradesmen and
merchants like wine-growers or cartwrights. The house on the left has a
stork's nest on its roof. Storks are frequently sighted in Alsace as they
stop and stay in the area in the course of their migrations. As a result,
the stork has become one of the symbols of Alsace, and souvenir shops sell
pictures, postcards and stuffed animals in all guises and sizes.
