Visit the former workshop of Rodolphe Spillmann, a wealthy manufacturer of gold watch cases, as well as his former reception room.

A gem of watchmaking town planning, this former residence, renovated in the early 20th century, was used as a factory and residence. The Salon Bleu adjoining the workshop, decorated with magnificent floral motifs, is a superb example of the local Art nouveau: the Style sapin (Pine Tree Style).
