Neugartheim-Ittlenheim is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

On the top of the Kochersberg stood a castle built in the 13th century, it has been destroyer three centuries later and the only relief staying is its past peripheral ditch.

On its place was built between 1794 and 1797 a semaphore tower, the second nearest station from Strasbourg (after Dingsheim's one) on the semaphore line to Paris, it was used until 1852.

Since the late 20th century, a memorial replaced this tower. Consisting of a motionless reproduction of the arms of such a tower, it can still be seen (within clear weather) from over ten kilometres, making the Kochersberg hill easily recognizable.
