Kirrberg is a commune in the northwest of the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France. It lies 18 kilometres (11 mi) to the west of Phalsbourg.

History[edit]

The earliest surviving record, naming the village as Villa Teurino, dates from 512; the first appearance of a precursor to the present name occurs in 1501 with the name Kirpberg.

During the Thirty Years' War the village was almost entirely destroyed by fire.
