Zoom Destinations / Mulhouse


Mulhouse is a French town located in the European community of Alsace, the largest town in the Haut-Rhin in terms of population, the second largest in Alsace (after Strasbourg) and the fourth largest in the Grand Est region. It is the archetype of the city created by migratory flows since the industrial revolution, and is a very cosmopolitan city. Mulhouse is close to Germany and Switzerland, with which it has important links, and it is from these that the Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg international airport (EuroAirport), the largest in the Grand Est region, was created. This industrial identity is reflected above all in the cultural aspect of Mulhouse, which has the largest automobile museum in the world: the Cité de l’automobile, which contains the famous Schlumpf collection. The Electropolis museum is the largest in Europe dedicated to electrical energy.

Finally, the Cité du Train is the largest railway museum in Europe. This concentration makes Mulhouse the «European capital of technical museums». The city has been awarded the «City of Art and History» label. Mulhouse was the birthplace and home of Captain Alfred Dreyfus, whose affair split the whole of France in two.

Mulhouse is the birthplace of the great mathematician Jean-Henri Lambert and Alfred Werner, who won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1913, and the volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft, who were also well-known Mulhouse residents. Land of the Reformation, Mulhouse is home to the Saint-Etienne temple, the highest Protestant building in France.
