The Mystic of Niederbronn

Do you know Alsace, that very beautiful and attractive region at the eastern end of France? It borders with Germany whose uncertain frontiers have shifted several times. It was in North Alsace, in Outre-Forêt, home of the Reformation, in a village named Niederbronn-les-Bains, surrounded by forestsand famous from Roman times as a medicinal spa resort, that Elizabeth Eppinger was born on September 9th 1814.
This small town is situated at the base of the Vosges foothills, at the crossroads of the Alsace and Lorraine plain. The region’s industry is predominantly agricultural. The fi elds and the forests are operated as small properties.
