Kleingœft (German: Kleingöft) is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

Geography[edit]

Surrounding communes are Wolschheim and Maennolsheim to the northeast; Westhouse-Marmoutier to the southeast; and Lochwiller to the west.

Landmarks[edit]

  • Chapel of Betbur
Constructed in the twelfth century, the chapel was originally the parish church of Betbur. Betbur was destroyed during or before the German Peasants' War, and a new village was constructed nearby on the site of what is now known as Kleingœft; the chapel retained its role as a parish church, now being the parish church of Kleingœft, its cemetery being the Kleingœft village cemetery. Later a new larger church was built in the centre of Kleingœft, but the Chapel of Betbur is still open and can be visited: occasionally religious services are still celebrated in it.
