Economy[edit]

Employment opportunities in the village are limited; the traditional economic focus of the region is Sélestat some fifteen kilometres (ten miles) to the west. The river crossing of Marckolsheim with its associated locks and hydro-electric power station offer employment opportunities: many mostly low-paid seasonal jobs are also provided by the Europa-Park 'theme park'.
