Geography

Geispolsheim is positioned 12 kilometres (7 mi) to the south of Strasbourg.

The construction of a railway between Strasbourg and Mulhouse involved the building in 1841 of a station approximately 3 kilometres (2 mi) to the east of the little town: this was followed by the development around the new station of a separate little conurbation, albeit one that always remained a part of the commune of Geispolsheim. The newer settlement was known as 'Geispolsheim-Gare' (Geispolsheim-Station), and retains the name even though the station itself was demolished in 1992, while the original settlement is still unofficially referred to as 'Geispolsheim-Village'. The two parts of the little town are linked by the departmental road RD84.

Today included in the Urban Community of Strasbourg, Geispolsheim is well positioned for future expansion: it already offers significant local employment and commercial opportunities in its industrial and artisanal zones.
